Hippo Birthday Card

I made this card for my little granddaughter who is turning 2 on Friday. It is an A2 size card. The paper is Bo-bunny and Cosmo Cricket. The hippo was cut at 3" the balloon at 2.5" I can't remember what size the 2 was. The hooray was cut at 3". The inside sentiment was cut at 4". I added glossy accents to the balloon and used twine for the bows and string. I made a little skirt out of tulle and glued it down. The little black parts for the hippo's face were way to small so I used googlie eyes and a marker. Everything is popped up. I'm entering this in the challenge at CTO which is you must use a balloon.
