Gloria the Hippo


This is my first post of 2012. I made the card for a sweet little girls first birthday. I used Gloria the Hippo and the January 1st stamps. The image was colored with Copic markers C00, C01, C03, C05, C07, G0000, G00, R20 and R22. The background was created with Labels Ten Spellbinders. I added some pink & green baker's twine. The edges were inked with a light pink from Bazzinks. The flowers were spritz'd with Creme de Rouge Glimmer Mist. As the finishing touches star bling was added.

The inside of the card has the January 1st stamp and I used a star stamp as the background design. January 1st is the little girl's actual birth date. The paper used for the card is from SEI- Happy Day. I thought the print of the Happy Birthday Sentiment went well with Gloria.

Happy Birthday sweet Juliette!
