Stampin' Up Hippo and Friends Happy Hippo Birthday Card

 Today's card features Stampin' Up Hippo Happiness Stamp Set.  I was inspired by this weeks Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.  

I started with a panel of Stampin' Up In Colors Designer Series Paper adhered to a panel of Gorgeous Grape card stock.  

I die cut a piece of Basic White with Stampin' Up Stitched Rectangle Die Set.  I adhered it to the card front.

I stamped the cute little hippo from Stampin' Up Hippo Happiness Stamp Set in Polished Pink and Melon Mambo ink.  I stamped balloons from the same stamp set with Polished Pink, Gorgeous Grape and Calypso Coral inks.  I stamped 2 butterflies with Calypso Coral, Pale Papaya, Gorgeous Grape and Highland Heather ink.  I die cut each image with Stampin' Up Hippo and Friends Die Set.

I stamped the butterfly trail with Mementos Black Tuxedo ink.  I stamped the sentiment with Gorgeous Grape ink.

I adhered pieces of black twine from Stampin' Up Baker's Twine Essential Pack to the back of each balloon.  

I adhered all the die cuts to the card front with Stampin' Dimensionals.
I finished the inside off with a sentiment repeated in Polished Pink, Pale Papaya and Gorgeous Grape ink.  I stamped another hippo in the corner with Polished Pink and Melon Mambo ink.
