Bitten By The Bug 2-Elephantly Speaking

I made this card for the new challenge that started 'today' over at Bitten By The Bug 2. The challenge is to make a project using an elephant from any cartridge and any theme you choose. I fired up my Gypsy Girl and typed in elephant to see which cartridges have them. I decided to go with the Pooh and Friends Cartridge. I cut Lumpy from page 35 at 3.5 inches. I hid the eye cutouts so I could use these tiny black faux half pearls instead. It messed up when it cut the tuff of hair so I recut it and the tail. The extra tail I popped up. Also did a little bit of doodling with my white gel pen. The two patterned papers are from K&Company Itsy Bitsy Baby Girl Paper Pad. I was thrilled when I found the elephant paper in it!! I used Spellbinder's Scalloped Ovals and cut the mat and the piece for the sentiment and the pieces on the inside. The sentiment is from the 'Sweet Talk' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. I finished off my card by adding some pink faux half pearls. I think this will be perfect when I need the next baby girl card. Bet y'all didn't expect to see a card from me this quickly, did ya?! Hope ya like my card!!!! :)
