Happy hippos

Last Sunday was my daughter in law's birthday but they were at Graceland celebrating. I raised my sons on Elvis music so they went to visit his home. Today we are watching the weather to decide if everyone is coming for her family birthday here. This is the card I made for her. She loves hippos so I used this old Hero Arts stamp and cut and colored it three times for dimension. Using a Lawn Fawn die I cut a hill and sponged on Peeled Paint and Twisted Citron. The frame is Gina Marie and the Happy was cut with  a Die-Namics die. I colored each letter with Copics. The hippopartymus is Simon Says Stamp. I just added sequins of each colored letter and glossy accents to the eyes and nose. The highlights are a Sharpie white paint pen.  Hope she likes it.




Be kind to one another.
