We'll Always Be Friends!

Hello friends! Hope you all are doing good. I'm so in love with this Happy Hippo stamps set from My Favorite Things. So here is another card featuring adorable happy hippos. I'm playing along this week's My Favorite Things Sketch and Color challenges. Here is my take on this week's challenges.

First, I die cut the beautiful arched window using the Memory Box - Grand Madison Arched Metal Die. Next, I masked the window and stamped two hippo images on each side of the window and colored them using distress inks. Then, I used the Grassy Border from Lawn Fawn to make the bushes in front of the window. I stamped on the sentiment from the Happy Hippo stamps set. I die cut the word 'friends' using the My Favorite Things - Little Lowercase Letters Die Cut. I added some dimensional dots from EK Success - Rainbow Dots and finished off the card.

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:
MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #348
MFT Color Challenge #76
Addicted to CAS Challenge #118 - Friends
AAA Cards CAS Game #97 - Masking
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - Anything Goes

Oh ya! Hope you all are ready for The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge by Kathy Rac :) :) :) Yay! I'm super excited! Do check out her blog for more details and have fun coloring!
