New stamps. New challenge. Flight of the Conchords. Giant blizzard.

These things all make for a very productive day :)

So I bought this new set of Avery Elle stamps "Hipster-potomus" for the sole reason that it reminded me of a Flight of the Conchords song. And then the challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays is to create a clean and simple card based on a favorite song. Cha-ching

Here is the song I was inspired by: "Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros" by Flight of the Conchords. I hope you get a laugh out of it on this snow day!

And my card, mostly based on the lyrics
Here's the Hiphopopotamus
The hip hop hippo
They call me the Hiphopopotamus
My lyrics are bottomless
They call me the Hiphopopotamus

I wanted to use as many trendy hipster patterns as I could. Chevrons, arrows, plaids. Materials: pattern paper Bella Blvd "Devoted" and Basic Grey "What's Up?", Copic N4, washi tape from k&co and Freckled Fawn.
