I coloured the sweet hippo with Prismacolor pencils and then added a precoloured bouquet of heart balloons (freebie from Pixel Scrapper), tied to Hallie's tail with a digital bow that was in a kit from Far Far Hill. The image is popped up with foam tape.
Check out the gorgeous Celebrate background paper! It's a freebie from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles and you can find it here. Make sure you thank Lisa and tell her that Kitty sent you! Now if you'd like a chance to win one of four fabulous prizes from Decosse's Dynamite Doodles, see my Candy Giveaway!
The panel behind the hippo is embossed with Cuttlebug Cross My Heart; the cardstock was in my scraps folder, left over from a previous project. I heat-embossed the sentiment from Clearly Besotted Flight of Fancy in white on a black scrap and affixed it with foam tape. Lastly I added three black sequins.
