Hippo Birthday

Time for a new challenge at A Gem of a Challenge and this time we want to see wet or dry embossing on your card. I have used one of Janet's newest images, Henrietta with flowers. I did enjoy colouring her with Copics of course. I went for a distressed look today using Santoro Willow papers and an old sentiment embossing folder which I embossed onto Core'dinations and then sanded.  I used a new Memory Box die, frangia bouquet. It's quite a large die but I just used the flowers and cut of the stems. I really like the uneven petals.

I hope the weather stays dry today. What a funny week it has been, sun, rain and even a little snow and hail. We are going to a 70's concert in Cromer tonight so thought we would have a day at the coast going to Sheringham and then on to Cromer. Think we will be wrapping up warm.

Don't forget to check out my candy.

I like the distressed look, but never manage to bring myself to 'rough up' my papers when it comes to doing it myself! Your little hippo is really sweet and the flower dies are really different, not ones I've seen before, but really effective with the pearls in their centres.
