Hippo Birdie to You

Here's a fun card for my nephews 5th Birthday!
I used my MISTI and a border stamp from Simon Says Stamp to make a repeating background using two different colors of avery elle pigment ink.
Once dry I cut out a little window with an MFT circle die, and using a die one size smaller and created a little border for my window.

I traced the window onto my card base so I could line up my stamps, which I again picked up with MISTI, but before stamping down I took some tide pool inks from Hero arts to lightly ink the background, then stamps and colored my images on top.

Stamped my sentiment onto a little flag cut from MFT stitched fishtails and viola! 

I've linked everything below used to make this card, which I am submitting to the Avery Elle stripes challenge, SSS Work it Wednesday, and the CAS(e) the Sketch challenge.

I'd love it if you'd join me on social media!!
You can find me on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter all time!
