Hippo Sketch # 165

Hello crafty Friends,
    Just a quick card today with the hippo from A1180 Safari Ballet, love this set! I used sketch # 165 at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge as inspiration. Here is the sketch....
And here is my card... I coloured the hippo with water colour pencils, and paper pieced the tutu. I am using up retired paper which always feels good! I also used the colour challenge #198 from colormyheartcolordare to use sweet leaf and cotton candy. As well as Between the folds challenge to make birthday cards! I hope you like it and find some inspiration.
