For this weeks challenge over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 we are sponsored by Meljens Designs and we have a blast from the past sketch to play with.
I couldn't resist this sweet hippo image, especially as only a couple of days before it popped into my inbox I had been saying to one of my friends that you didn't see many hippo images around.
So I used a scalloped card from Craftwork Cards for my base,
The pink and green cards are from American Crafts Spring selection.
The papers are Lili of the Valley/Nitwits Perfect Pair, I decided to use them to paper piece the hippo but the yellow bird is done with One Birdie Lane Papers. The sentiment is also Lili of the Valley and I suspect that the crochet trim was picked up on a visit to their shop too.
The flower is by Prima, it has been on the shelf for too long.
Thank you for visiting and I do hope that you might join in this week with us.
