Sketch with Happy Hippo

We have some sun today, so what better than to make a card with sunny, happy colors! This bikini clad hippo is a digi from Mo's Digital Pencil.  I've used 2 different design papers with spots and dots. I've used a Spellbinder die to make the frame arounf the image, and I'v used 2 different leaves dies for the flowers. The two decorative corners are rub-ons. The design is inspired by the sketch over at "Sketches by Carly".
