Party hippo

Hello lovely people,

I have a Dies to Die For DT card for you today and I finally had a little play with the uber cute MFT Happy Hippos...

...and my new balloon shaker dies/pouches...

...and a fab new sentiment!

To be fair, I do have a LOT of new things to play with so I've gotta squeeze as many in as possible - lol!

This hippo looks all set to party I think with his cute party hat and that lovely big balloon!

I filled the balloon shaker pouch with die cut twirly things (technical term!) and sequins, then sealed the back with coloured card that I had stamped the sentiment onto.

In case anyone is wondering, I used the 2 larger dies from the MFT Blueprints 29 set, taped together with an even gap in between, to create the frame.
