I went simple this week as I wanted the focus to be on her and the Spring flowers. Used my Icicles Die from Marianne Designs- just turned it into grass.  The Leaf and Sentiment die are from Sizzix and the flowers and enamel dots are Recollections. 

I colored the Happy Hippo with SN Markers; then fussy cut her out. I created a frame using my Circle Die from Spellbinders.
