Hats and Things with Hippo-Ray


Hi all!  I'm sharing a card today that I really had fun making. This cute hippo is from an older Doodle Pantry set called Hippo-Ray .  I updated this precious image by merging a bow and string of pearls from the new Doodle Pantry set, Hats and Things, on top of the dancing hippo.  I love Doodle Pantry's add-on sets.  They really are fun to use, and can give your images a whole new look.  The sentiment is from another DP set, Happy Sheep.

The digital images I used are precolored making for a quick and easy card.  I did add some of my own coloring and shading to the images.  Although it's barely noticeable in the photo, I cut out the ruffle from a second copy of Hippo-Ray and added it to my card with dimensionals.  Both the green check and floral digi papers are also from the Hippo-Ray set.  I used lots of different dies and punches to embellish my card -- Marvy flower punch, MS butterflies and leaves punches, Spellbinder rectangular die as well as a Papertrey scallop border die. Pearls were added to the centers of the flowers and butterflies.

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Inky Impressions (IIC #113) -- Anything Goes
Bearly Mine Challenge #91 -- Flowers Galore
Paper Playtime Challenge 12 -- Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Enjoy the rest of your day!
