NSD - My Pink Stamper Challenge #12

Challenge # 12 was "Critter-licious" and the challenge was to make a scrapbook page, card, or project using an animal or critter.

I decided to make the following birthday card for a dear friend whose birthday dinner I am going to tonight. 

I thought this Hippo was just too cute and had to use it.  :-)

For the base of the card, I started with a 5 x 7 card.  The blue mat is cut to fit.  I used the Create a Critter cartridge for the sentiment and the Hippo's.  The larger Hippo is cut at 2 1/4" and the smaller, "baby", Hippo is cut at 1 3/4".  I also cut out one of the grass bunches at each size.  The "pond" is cut at 2" as is the 'Happy Birthday' sentiment.  I embossed the 'Happy Birthday' using the Swiss Dots embossing folder.  The "pond" is embossed with the Divine Swirls embossing folder.  Since this was Coordinations cardstock, I sanded it to get some texture.

Have a nice evening.....
