Stampin' Up! Elebration and I create a Birthday Card

Hi guys! I have a whole bunch of birthdays that need cards this month. This one was made for a friend to give to their grandma for her birthday.... I was asked to use an elephant on it.... So, here it is.
This is a small card, at only 4.25" Square. It is a Tempting Turquoise base, layered with Whisper White, some patterned paper from Echo Park, and some Basic Grey card which I ran through the Big Shot, using a non Stampin' Up! Embossing folder. I stamped the elephant, which is an á la carte single stamp, that retails for $19.95 on some watercolour paper using StazOn. I then coloured him with my Stampin' Write Markers and a Blender Pen. I used Daffodil Delight, Sahara Sand, Tempting Turquoise and Marina Mist. I cut him out very carefully, and attached him to the card front. The sentiment is from Short and Sweet (one of the first sets I ever bought through Stampin' Up!)
I am entering this into three challenges, first up is the Mojo Monday Sketch, next is the Stamp Spot inspiration challenge, and once again, I'm linking this up to Simon Says Stamp anything goes.
Anyway, I hope to craft today, so there may be more to come :)
Happy Stamping and Don't forget to enter my Blog Candy!
