Pretty Pink Hippos Need Love too...

Happy Sunday! The Sentimental Sundays team is really hoping you haven't put away those traditional Valentine's Day colors yet! Our challenge for you this week is to create a card or project using the colors Red, Pink and White! I know, I know...but it's just ONE more time! LOL!

We have a sponsor this week! The fabulous Melissa Jenkins of MelJen Designs is sponsoring our challenge and generously gave the design team some of her fabulous digi images to work with. I decided to use a new one just released this month for my card...
Hearty Hippo is just so cute! And yes, SHE'S PINK!! For some reason I always think of pink hippos...could it be because of the old Disney Movie Fantasia? I seem to recall pink hippos...or maybe it was grey hippos in pink tutus? Anyways, this little hippo was DYING to be pink so I gladly complied! I even gave her a dabble of sparkle for "blush", toenail polish and of course her little tail! Now she's a glamourus pink hippo!

The sentiment is from the Little Moments set by Paper Makeup Stamps...a MUST HAVE for your stamp collection--you have been seeing a LOT of it on my creations lately. It really is a great sentiment set.

We hope you join us this week for our COLOR INSPIRATION challenge this week at Sentimental usual you can make ANYTHING, just remember it MUST have a visible sentiment for it to be in the running for our prize! Feel free to use sentimentalsundays42 if you upload to SCS!
