Hippo Birthday

Hi. I have a fun card to share today – and not a Nuvo drop to be seen:

I used the Big Picture Book Hippo from Simon says Stamp – die cut out of white, and some grey added in places for some shading.

The leaves from the Altenew stamp set were stamped using all three layers, then I had a play with the layout.

I felt that the hippo could be peering through some leaves and greenery to wish someone a happy birthday – that was the way my mind was going, anyway…….

I added some green sequins – instead of Nuvo drops – for some added bling and dimension.

I shall be entering the following challenges:

Color Throwdown multi tonal greens and black and white

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challengeuse some green

Seize The Birthday Birthday with option of a touch of green

Time Out Challenges Birthday with option of die cutting or fussy cutting
