Candy Stripe Hippo

Hi Everyone, well another new hippo coming to Sandra's shop today this time it is a Candy Stripe Hippo. I thought it was a perfect image to make a get well card. I have colored the hippo with Copics. using C1,3,5 for the hippos and using RV11,32,35 for the outfit and nails. I have used some paper from Lap of Luxury dsp from Stampin up, some square gems, and used a circle and scalloped circle die from Spellbinders and poly twill ribbon from Stampin Up as well in Blushing Bride.
Thanks for looking
