Meet Helga!

Well, I’m back to birthday cards.  I needed a card for by niece and found this adorable image at PolkadoodlesHelga Hippo Bring the Cake is her name.  She is so cute!  I knew I just had to color her!

Birthday Cards-58

I used my Copics to color her and have listed the colors at the bottom of this post.  I had so much fun coloring her!

After coloring her, I cut her out using an oval die.  I added some fun foam to the back to pop her up a bit.  My background paper is also from Polkadoodles, from the Helga collection.  What great paper for the background!

Birthday Cards-57

I added a bit of lace to the background before adding my image to the card.  A few Nuvo drops in Caribbean Ocean and Sweet Lilac added a little more interest.  My sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp, Stroke Messages.

Birthday Cards-56

What a fun image!  I’m sure I’ll be using a few more of the Helga images as there are some really cute ones!
