Good morning all;
I hope your week is going well. Our holidays are finished for the summer and it's time to get back to normal!! The sun has been shining for the last few days so hopefully our summer is starting now. Crazy weather!!

I have been playing with my Motivet new release and I thought I would share a fun summer card with you featuring the adorable new addition to the Motivet family....HILDA the HIPPO. Every time I look at her it brings a smile to my face!!

The image I have used is "Hida on innertube" and "Wonderful Summer" sentiment.

I stamped the image with Memento black onto smooth water colour paper and embossed it with clear powder. I used my Inkssentials pen for the highlights. The flower centers are white liquid pearls. The yellow bg is embossed with a CB folder and the waves are done with my EK Success punch. The circles have been cut with my nesties. I pierced the blue scallop with a piercing tool. The sentiment was stamped onto shrink film with Stazon black and shrunk with my heat tool. The corners were cut by hand from a 1" square.

I hope you like it,
Thanks so much for stopping by.....

Have a fabulous day!!
