Birthday Elephant

At Totally Gorjuss this week we have a great sketch for you to use and the chance to win a voucher from Joanna Sheen. I do love elephants and for my card, which is an 8" square, I have used one of the gorgeous stamps from Wild Rose, coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I have used one of my fave paper pads, Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby. I have used a neglected MS deep edge trellis punch and added some lovely glittery ribbon and bow. I have used both the butterflies and the negative from the MB die and Viva pearl pen on the butterflies. The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards.
