Love You Hippo!

Isn't this Hippo by Melanie from Gina K. Designs just THE cutest ever?!? I love her, she's the main reason I had to have this set.

I made this card for two challenges, the fantastic sketch is by Asela Hopkins and I used dry embossing for the Our Creative Corner challenge. This sketch was so perfect for the "OCC" challenge, it was my first time using my brand new oval nestabilites that I bought from Marcie at who is sponsoring the prize at OCC! I dry embossed both my white oval and the card base.
I paper pieced the hippo, and popped up! lol

I loved making a card with this sketch, it's one I'll use again and again. It was also fun to pull some Cool Caribbean from my stash, I still love this colour!
