Hippo Birdie to You!

Popping in to share a not-so-quick make I started last night and finished this morning.

The card is for my Niece who's favourite colours are electric blue and mint. The gold is pure indulgence on my part!

I broke out the distress inks to colour my images today, I used to use these ALL THE TIME when I was into fussy & frilly cards (Magnolia - need I say more?! - they're a very unloved part of my stash now, I sold quite a few but I have quite a few more I can't bear to part with!)

I'm not too sure about the stamped background, perhaps it should be a lot more subtle...hey ho!

Thanks for stopping by today!

  1. Awwww so cute :) lovely colors !

  2. Listen, Nikki, I think if your focus pocus is a celebrating hippo with a rockin' bird on his back, you can go less than subtle with the background!! I think your design is fabulous in every way, especially that fun angled stripe panel trimmed in gold for your sediment! Your niece will adore it!! Hugs, Darnell

  3. This is really adorable! Nicely done!

  4. Such a cute and fun card, love it!

  5. I know I commented earlier but I must have forgotten to publish or Blogger is up to its old schtuff again. At any rate your card is super cute. Blues are my favorite shades too. Always like gold on a card. Nice work. - Jim

  6. What an adorable design.
