How could I forget your birthday?

Hi!  I did this card for a challenge over at Bitten By the Bug 2.  We were to make something with an elephant on it.  There are tons (no pun intended lol!) of cute elephant cuts on the various cartridges, but I wound up choosing this one from ZooBalloo, mostly because I like giraffes.  Go figure.


Most of the CS is retired SU except for Bashful Blue (sky) and Certainly Celery (grass).  The clouds are actually from the SU cupcake punch.  I had punched some out for another card, which I will show tomorrow, and so I used them for clouds.  I used my Cri-kit markers to outline the cuts before I cut them out.  Grass is a MS punch.  I can't decide if I want to make it a straight kids' birthday card or computer generate a cute saying like "How could I forget your birthday?" and make it a belated birthday card.  Since that is the kind I usually send.  

Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great day!
