I'll Never Forget Your Birthday!!

This is the card that I made for Hambo Stamps' Hambo Hoedown # 7. Isn't this image adorable??? It's called Party Elephant and you can buy it here.

The challenge this week was to use Party Elephant and make it sparkle! My card sparkles more in real life than it does in the scan. Check out the Hoedown for yourself and play along! As soon as I saw the elephant image I thought "elephants never forget" so I tied a string around his trunk and computer-generated the sentiment. I think he turned out cute!! Just have to decide who I'll send it to!

I am also sumbitting this card to the Wee Memory challenge #48- Cute & Cuddly, Card Makin' Mamas Challenge #17- Animals, and the Send A Smile For Kids challenge #6- Birthday Girl.

Stamps: Party Elephant Digi-Image (Hambo Stamps), sentiment is computer-generated
Patterned Paper: The Pocket Full of Posies Stack with Sparkles
Cardstock: Real Red, Bashful Blue (Stampin' Up!), GP110 white
Accessories: Copic Markers, glitter brads (Stampin' Up!), keytag punch, pop dots, Basic Black fine-tip marker (Stampin' Up!), Nestabilities, Cuttlebug
