Hippo Better get Better

I made this get well card for a teenager that has just finished up 2 years of cancer treatments. She now has a flu virus and ear infection from her immune system being low. I am hoping this cheers her up. Her Mom and I are on a group together for stamping. I sure hope her daughter likes this. It is also another card for Chrissy's Belli Challenge, if you haven't checked it out already check out Chrissy's blog and take the challenge. Link your card to her blog and have a chance to win a prize.
Supplies Needed:

Silver Card stock- I didn't have any gray but this turned out so shinny and cute with the silver I am glad I used it.
White and Pretty in Pink and scraps of black card stock
Mauve Mist and Basic Black Ink Pads
Sizzix Bookplates die cut also done in the silver
Two pink eyelets
1" circle punch
1/2" circle punch
1/4" circle punch
word punch
large oval punch cut two
corner rounder with tab on sides removed

Stamp main card in Mauve mist with a small background stamp. Mine has mini butterflies on it.
Stamp Pretty in Pink card stock with stamp and ink. These are cut at 2 1/8 square for behind the hippo and one is cut at 4 1/4" x 1 3/8"
Cut 2 1/4 square of silver for behind the hippo.
Cut a 1" x 4 1/4" strip of silver and use your corner rounder to make the scallops on the side. Mount this on the main card and then the larger pink piece near that leaving a little of the scalloped edge showing.
On WW stamp your word Better get Better and cut out place your bookplate over this and put in eyelets. Add glue dots and stick to card in lower right hand corner.
Make your Hippo by following the sample. Pop dot him to the pink stamped card stock piece and then to the silver and mount to the main card just off of the Pink strip.

Hope you enjoyed today's project.
