Just Hopping By... share a fun card!

I've entered this one into the new/current Art Impressions Challenge  : Cards with Movement. Details HERE.
Edited to add that this little card won the challenge...excuse me while I do the Happy Hop :-)

I decided to use just one of the girls from the stamp set 'Hop Hop Hop' (isn't it a FUN image?)

Instead of colouring the whole image I chose to combine colouring with paper piecing.

After fussy cutting the image I attached it to a strip of clear plastic.

I then attached the image to the card base making sure that it will all still fit into a standard envelope. I kept the rest of the embellishments to a minimum as this will be mailed internationally and I want it to arrive in good condition!

The card base is based on a card made by Dawn Griffith. Details HERE and video HERE

The card is intended for a special person who has had a rough few months and I hope it brings a smile to her face every time she sees it. I specifically chose this design so it can be displayed and enjoyed. The little figure sways and bops easily perched on the clear acetate strip.

Can you say FUN?

Such a cute card! I love how you made the image stand up on acetate and that it will "bounce" around! Thanks for playing along with us in our current challenge over at Art Impressions!
