Pink Elephants

Here we are winding down another week.  So glad you could stop by.  I've got a baby card today based on the A la Card Monkey Challenge #103.  Besides using the sketch, you had to include an animal on the card.

For the card base I used Whisper White card stock.  The image from the retired Baby Steps stamp set was heat embossed on Whisper White card stock with VersaMark, Heat and Stick Powder and the pink glitter from the Fine Supernova glitter collection.  The corners were rounded as were the corners of the Pear Pizzazz mat.  The ears were punched out of Nursery Nest designer paper with 1/2" and 1/4" circle punches and popped up on the elephants with dimensionals.  The sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set was stamped on Whisper White card stock with Basic Gray ink and punched out with the Word Window punch.  I also punched a piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock with the same punch and used it to mat both ends of the sentiment.  It was attached to the image with glue dots.  A piece of Pear Pizzazz card stock was run through the Big Shot with the Square Lattice embossing folder.  I cut four pieces of the Nursery Nest designer paper, rounded one corner and attached them to the embossed Pear Pizzazz layer.  The image layer was added using glue dots.  I made a loop with the Blushing Bride ribbon and added a retired Build a Brad with the same designer paper to the center to give it a bow effect.  This was added to the side of the image and the whole layer attached to the card front.  A little bit of bling to welcome a sweet little one.  Have a fun day - try to fit in some creative time.
