Great clean and simple card! Love the technique of combining the pattern paper shirt with the copic colors (esp if you don't have many copics). Also, combing the warm background with the cool colors of the rhino. Glossy accents always add a great shine!

This is so sweet Francine. I love how you created your hill and background. I love a card with less layers.

I've never seen such a cute rhino stamp before. This is one I would certainly use on cards to my grandsons.
