Day 158: Happy Birthday Elephant Card

So I've been staring at this awesome Photo Inspiration challenge at Just Us Girls and wanting to do something with it...but I couldn't decide what.
Then tonight I took a peek at this week's Mojo Monday sketch and something just clicked. I remembered this adorable Amy Tangerine elephant diecut I've been hoarding saving, and I was off to the races! I embossed a panel of White Daisy cardstock with the quatrefoil embossing folder. Then I colored in the raised areas using a waterbrush and Lagoon ink with lots of water. 
I added a snip of Scaredy Cat B&T paper. I'm going to miss this versatile paper packet when it goes Buh-bye at the end of August (or sooner if it sells out). I stamped the main front panel with pieces from Happy Everything (the Operation Smile set that sends $3 to help change the life of a child!) and Doodled Designs. Then I added some journaling pen stitches before mounting the elephant die cut and cricut balloon. I did add some sewing thread for the balloon string - couldn't resist! 
Hope this one brought a smile to your face too!
Got my Operation Smile shirt today too - can't wait to wear it out and about tomorrow!
