Birthday Elephants


Happy New Year!

I have had this adorable Cuddly Buddly free digi image for quite a while and have not had the chance to use it. Since a friend's daughter is turning 8 later this week, I decided it was the time to break it out (or print it out?).

This card also fits several challenges:
Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #54 (MTSC54)
Charisma Cards Challenge - Celebrations (Be sure to check out their birthday blog hop.)
Three Clovers Designs Challenge - Celebrations



Supplies:
Image from Cuddly Buddly
All paper and ink from Stampin' Up (DP is from the Sweet package)
Ribbon from Minnesota Fabrics (from my Mom's stash. It is probably 20 years old.)
Sentiment from Clear Design Cupcakes (Hero Arts)
Spellbinders Nestabilities
Stampin' Up Border punch
