One card. Two friends. Six hippos!

OK so there's a bit of a story behind tonight's cards.

Once Upon a time ... there were 2 friends.  One sent the other a birthday card, and she loved it so much she crossed her own name out and sent it back to her friend on her birthday.  Her friend sent it back again the following year, and so on and so on.  This carried on for 15 years!  But now the card has been lost :(
So my mate in work asked me to make a card for them....

I've used my lovely new hippos from Clearly Besotted (Jo, that shopping trip was your fault!)
Coloured with watercolour pencils and clear gloss / glitter added to their tutus.  Stripy DP from MFT.  Flower die was a magazine freebie.

So then when you flip the card over, Jenny's is an orange version of the same card.

And in case you don't get what I've done, here's the unfolded card ...
