Here is my interpretation of the challenge. I had a hard time choosing a favorite since all the create a smile stamps products are favorite. So I decided to make a card which had it all at least almost.
I started with a topfolded white card and made a ombre effect with distress ink.
I cut a panel out of vellum and took the palmtree die from the beach party kit and embossed it onto the vellum.
I took another white panel and partial diecut the thanksdie on top of it.
Used the same ombre effect with the thanksstamp.
I diecut the middle pierced stacked ovals out of some leftover cardstock and used the negative to make the background for my hippo.
Again embossed the palmtree die and second generation stamped the little icecreams. I smooched some distress ink to make the background.
Stamped the hippo and the icecreams and copic colored them. Ofcourse I had to give the hippo some glasses with the great magical frame die set.
Adhered everything at the card and stamped the sentiment.
Tied some ribbon around the panel and placed it on top of the cardbase with some foamtape to give it more dimension.
Rounded the corners to finish the card.

Make sure you hop along all those talented ladies and  
we’ll be giving away a 25€ gift card on the blog for people wo hop along and answer a few questions.
Vergeet niet om alle blogs langs te gaan en enkele vragen te beantwoorden we geven een 25€ kadobon weg op het blog.

Such a fun card! I loooove how the hippo's wearing glases. It almost looks as if he's having a squint now. Which is absolutely hilarious. It also makes me feel sorry for the poor guys who ordered all the yummy treats on his tray. Hope he'll manage to safely carry it over to them. ;o)
