Fabulous Friday - more Helga Hippo

Happy Friday everyone.

Guess what?!  My daughter Shannon comes home from college tomorrow, for the summer!!  Whoop Whoop!  So looking forward to having her home for a little while. She has been doing her 2nd Semester exams this week and her last one is today!  Love her and so proud of her.

Anyways, did you know that Polkadoodles challenges are now Always Anything Goes?!  Yep they are, so if you create something then why not come along and enter our challenges.

I have used the delightful Helga Hippo collection and one of the pre-coloured Design sheets for my card today.

Isn't she adorable!  I have used Design Sheet 2-06 from the full bundle, but this is also available as Duo Download #9 - so two Design sheets to print and cut and make cards, if you don't want to purchase the whole collection.

For the inside, I have used a couple of the papers from the bundle and then used the middle sized die from the Set of 3 Elegant Nesting Dies.

All the edges of all the layers have been inked up, to make them pop some of the elements have been layered with foam tape.  This is another 4" by 4" card to add to a set of 6.

I couldn't resist adding a Flower Flourish using the Polkadoodles die, to compliment the flower.

Now it's over to you!

I am entering this card in the following challenges.
