Here is the card I created for todays release. I used Birthday Hippo from Whimsy's Crissy Armstrong Collection.
Of course this cutie was colored with my Copics ( Body: N0, N1, N3, N5, N7 - Pink: R85, R83, R81, RV00, RV000, RV0000 - Green: YG61, YG63, YG67 - Other: YG91, YG93, YG97 &  E50, E51, E53, E54 & E81, E87 ) I also used the new Celebration Circle Pennants sentiments and matching Circle Pennants dies. They were just perfect for my sketch. I used this weeks sketch from Sketch Saturday. My DP is a Digital DP designed by Michele Roos and available at Whimsy along with several other wonderful digital DP designs from Michele! This beautiful gingham paper is from the Country Cottage Charms collection. Buttons and brads are from Basic Grey, ribbon is from SU! My flowers are Whimsy Buds (sweet blossoms & cherry blossoms) and from my stash.


I also added some Crystal 3D Glaze to the balloon to give it some extra dimension.

I decorated the inside and used some more Shapeology dies (corner dies, balloon dies and hot air balloon die) The rectangular dies are from Spellbinders. DP is from the  Country Cottage Charms collection again.

And here's a final look at my card:

  2. Nein! Wie süß ist das denn?! Das Nilpferd ist einfach nur knuffig und Du hast es, wie üblich, sooooo schön coloriert *ganzneidischguck* und mit den tollen Embellies wunderbar in Szene gesetzt.
    Die Farben, die Gestaltung,... alles passt perfekt zusammen.
    Einfach nur schööööööön.

    Liebe Grüße und Knuddels,
