Party Koala

I recently found Mercy's blog (what took me so long!?) and she has great sketch challenges on Tuesday's!!! So I decided to combine today's Ways to Use It challenge on Splitcoast which was to use red with Mercy's sketch from Tuesday! Yesterday I colored and paper pieced this cute little guy Party Koala from Whipper Snapper, he is so cute!! I wanted to make more of a guy type card and thought this paper was perfect!! It has little bits of red in both papers so to try to bring it out more I added the brads and ribbon. I added Crystal Effects on his nose and the balloons. I tried to find a tiny black ribbon to add to his belly but I don't have one small enough.
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
