Upcycled Party Animal

Hello friends - thanks so much for stopping by today. I could not resist 'ucycling'  this card created using the Spellbinders Hip Llama - and he lives up to his name beautifully and now looks ready to party - which is just as well because this card was for my DH's birthday a couple of weeks ago.  You can see the original tutorial HERE.

The  Hip Llama had his 'groove on' already but to be able to party properly he needed a Party Hat -I have used one from the Stampers Anonymous set.

What is a party without a little cocktail - or for me - a mocktail!!  I have stamped this pretty once using Imagine Memento Ink in Tuxedo Black and has been coloured using Chameleon Pens, with a little sparkle added. I have created a pocket in the 'blanket' using a Kraft Knife and popped the mocktail in.

...and what is a party without a Banner - this one has been cut/embossed using the Spellbinders Amused 1 Etched Die and the Platinum Die Cutting Machine.

A few changes but definitely worth the upcycle - don't you think?!? OH and  - did my DH like it - HE LOVED IT!! Phew!! Wink:Wink!!
