Challenge Focus at PaperWorksCo

Today is the first of my regular DT contributions to the PWCO blog - I'm so excited!!  Every Saturday there will be a 'Challenge Focus' where we get to choose (a) challenge/s from either SCS or blogland!  I scoured my regular favourites and found 3 (will list them at the end) that I could combine with this one card - gotta love that!!  Also, a friend has just had a baby boy so I thought I would check that off the list too!
And what's more perfect for a baby card than Harriet the Hippo!  I love these papers 'Nana's Nursery' from DCWV.  The sheet with the parade of animals is just ideal for this image and I adore the colours together.  I decided to make an easel card - that style of card always showcases the work so nicely!  Harriet is paper pieced and I think looks ever so cute in her spots! 

I've used my new large scalloped circle nesties and button, ribbon & dew drops are from stash.  Harriet the Hippo can be found in the Safari Friends Collection here at PaperWorksCo.  Be sure to check out the store, Peggy has lots of yummy stuff available!

The 3 challenges are:-

Totally Papercrafts - 'Animal Magic'
Charisma Cardz - 'Spots & Stripes'

Thanks so much for stopping by today for a visit!  I love and appreciate every comment that you leave - thank you!  Be sure to keep an eye out for next Saturday as PWCO will be having another blog hop to release another new fabulous set of stamps!!

Hope you all enjoy a wonderful weekend!

Danielle this is so adorable, what a cutie of a hippo. loving the papers that you have used.. in answer to your question @ the random org thing...

I use snipping tool.
if you click your start button thing in the bottom left hand corner.. ( i am presuming that you have windows)
in the box at the bottom where it says start search... type in snipping tool.. this will open up a little window.. click the new button and select the type of snip you want.. i use the rectangle for the random org... when you have clicked and dragged over the area just save it to say your desktop and then use it in your post like you would a photo.. hope that this makes some sense as i am hopeless with instruction..
you can change the outline and things to a colour, you just have to fiddle with the snipping tool options to get it how you like it..
hugs RAchxx
