An Enormously Cute Card

Would you believe that it took HOURS for me to make this card! I knew that I wanted to use the colors from The Play Date Cafe #102  -Mauve, Egg Yolk, Artichoke but I had trouble figuring out what stamp to use! I also wanted to make a Clean and Simple card for the CAS-ual Friday #25-color your stamped image. I also used the Midnight Madness Sketch #126. Here it is.
The stamp and saying is Hero Arts. I colored the elephant with Copic markers and free handed the spots. I cut it out and glued it to the green card stock. I don't know who made the paper:( and I added gems. I do like the finished card but it sure was a struggle, I almost gave up! I think I will give it to my Daughter-In-Law because she loves elephants! Thanks for stopping by!
