Happy new year

This is a commissioned card - I was asked to design a new year card with hippos on it - I found a free online clipart, printed and fussy cut round the hippos. I designed the greeting in the shape digitally on computer and added the 2019. The background pieces of foiled card are Kanban ones bought years ago.

This is for:
