Hip-Hip's a card for a birthday!

Before I get to my card, I first must say HIP-HIP HORRAY for me for winning at Susies' Sassy Challenge this week, which is also the final week of their challenge :-( ! Bitter Sweet, I must say. Also YAY for doing my dusting ( I HATE DUSTING!)

As for my card, here we have Norman the Hippo. This lil fella is one of the Prairie Fairy's images and can be purchased here. This lil fella is also named after the Prairie Fairy's dad AND he has a girlfriend named Helen the hippo (who is the Fairy's mom). Now I dunno if her parents know that they are being made so popular by a couple of cutie patootie hippos, but hey when an artist gets inspiration, she better run with it!!

I am so excited to be able to enter this card in a few different challenges, as I've said in my previous post, I have fallen a bit behind lately!! The sketch is MoJo Monday, & Norman's outifit (shirt & pocket) fits into the Digital Tuesday Challenge of 'paper piecing-digital style'. This is only the second time I've attempted paper piecing & must admit I prefer to do it digitally!

My lil Norman is also covered & surrounded by lots of different shades of blue which ranks him into the Charisma Cardz Challenge of monochromatic colors. Also, for the Pink Elephant Challenge of thier latest recipe (1 image, 2 die cuts & 3 of fav. embelly) I have 1 Norman, 2 die cut shapes (around Norman & for the sentiment) & 3 buttons (I also LOVE flowers so there are 3 of those as well). Finally for Cute Card Thursday (touchy feely) we have everything I listed above from buttons, to paper flowers to a cut out shirt & pocket with a brad.
I am off to pack for Scrapaganza now!!!
