SIMON SAYS: H{ippity} Hop

I think this may be my first time to join in on the H{ippity} hop challenge.  So, I combined all four of the challenges into one card.  I followed the sketch, used red, white, and blue, used polka dots from the inspiration photo, and used brads.  In addition, this card is for Simon Says Stamps' challenge - animals.  I used a kraft base, then some check paper from Daisy D as well as two different pieces of "just the edge" by Bazzill.  The white paper is some watercolor paper and the blue is cardstock by Paper Studio.  I used a punch by Creative Memories to punch the square with the sentiment on it.  The sock monkey is from the Unity October 2009 Kit of the Month, Wherever You Go and the sentiment is from the  Ippity Fall 2009 "Life's Little Moments" set.  Love this Ippity Set--so very versatile with stamps that work for scrapbooking
AND cards.  The TINY red brads are by Bazzill and I used Stampin Up ink and Marvy markers.  Really happy with the way this one turned out.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your H{ippity} hop!
