Hippo Birdie to YOU - {SSSC232/CMCC33/STB}

 Hello there!  It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge
This week I ended up creating two birthday cards using the sketch (which I flipped).  I also used a fun new Lawn Fawn stamp set that I recently purchased.  I had so much fun using these stamps, it's nice to switch it up some times and instead of always creating floral or more formal cards, it's fun creating something cute.  Both cards use the same Lawn Fawn Year Four stamp set with coordinating dies but I mixed up the colors/patterns.  I'm entering this first card in the Color Me Challenge #33 and both cards into the Seize the Birthday Challenge: Anything Goes.
 Hippo's are my favorite animal from the zoo, I always end up taking a ton of pictures of them whenever we go to the zoo especially the Toledo Zoo where you can get close up to them.  The picture below is from years ago when our youngest was still small.
Be sure to check out what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Sketch Stampers have created:

Oh I love what you did with your new Lawn Fawn goodies! I'm trying to decide if I like the blue hippo or the grey one better! They are both so cute and colored so wonderfully! Such a cute picture of the real hippo too! They are such interesting things! :)
