I time for a new challenge at the Colour Crazy Craft Challenge.

Our sponsor this time is Polkadoodles and this is one of their images called Helga Hippo- Hello.

I have kept this card a bit vintage with softer colours. I have coloured Helga with alcohol pens, using mostly warm greys with just a hint of dusky pink and yellow. The patterned papers in the background are also soft colours. All the edges have been distressed with a distressing tool and distress inks. There is a lace border and some pale pink flowers round the sentiment.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges

Crafty Friends - flowers
Craft Rocket - April Flowers
Cute card Thursday - Shades of Pale
Ellibelle's creative Moment - Flowers and sentiment
