How Hip is My Hippo

Hello.  Welcome.  I made a thank you card for a friend.  In purple.  With hippos.  Purple hippos.  Well, why not.......

The hippos and the sentiment are from a new to me Happy Little Stamper Birthday Friends stamp set.  The stamp I used in the background is from Lost Coast Designs and is called Pondscum.  It's a bit of an unfortunate name for a very lovely stamp.  I think I will be using this one a lot.  But today is it's first outing.  NBUS.  I've used a sketch from Pagemaps and I am using shades of purple from Paperbabes inspiration photo.  Sorry about the bow.  It wouldn't behave and I ended up glueing it in place.  STAY!!  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
