Hippo Bird-Day

Good Morning Everyone,

I've had a little play whilst it's been wet and rainy and thought I'd enter another sketch challenge.

This is the card I've made based on this sketch:

I've used MFT Happy Hippos stamp set and am pleased to say I've used lots of snippets so I can enter into Pixies Snippets Playground.   The hippo, birds and banner (which looks a bit wonky on the photo, but isn't irl) were all from snippets of copic paper and both lots of backing paper were also found in my snippets boxes.  Everything that needed to be was coloured with copics and then fussy cut.  I stamped the balloons where they were going to be on the paper and then glued the fussy cut ones on top so I didn't have to actually cut out the strings.

Other dies used were Lawn Fawn hillside borders, cloud outlines and the banner.

I would like to enter:

  5. What a great card Carol - such a fun scene as well. And guess what, I've had the same hippo stamps and dies in the Playground Toy Box for months and months! Time to dig them out as a prize I think - I'd forgotten how cute they are :)

    Sorry I'm late commenting - blame Dudley Dog :)
