Hi there!  I hope you're having a good day!  I'm here to share my card for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge.  We've got some sweet colors for our challenge this week and we hope you'll take the time to play along.
For my card, I used the adorable My Favorite Things Happy Hippos stamp set and Happy Hippos coordinating Die-namics to create a birthday card.  I used a white card base, then added a white frame that I die cut using the Single Stitched Line Rectangle Frames Die-namics.  Next I added a stitched rectangle using some MFT Dots & Stripes Sorbet designer paper and Inside & Out Stitched Rectangle dies.  The pink striped paper looks darker in my pictures for some reason, it's not really that dark of a pink.  I also stamped my sentiment on a Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips which I shortened by die cutting once, then stamping and then lining the banner piece up in the die again where I wanted cut and running it through again.  I stamped and colored these fun little hippos with Copic markers and after adhering my sentiment banner along the bottom of my card, I added my stacked up hippos with foam tape then added the balloons birds and some silver sequins.
