Sending Tons of Love! BBTB2

Happy Monday my crafty friends!  It is a beautiful, beautiful day here today.  One might even say it is the perfect summer's day!!  Not to hot, hot humid...just perfect. And we haven't had many of them this summer. lol  Today on BBTB2 our talented and super sweet design team sister Shelly picked the theme, "Elephants" for our challenge.  At first I was thinking what the heck am I going to make using an elephant. lol  But then remembering that our grandson's 1st  birthday was coming up I decided to make a birthday card for him.  So using Paisley I welded two shadows of the elephant holding the envie together to make a shaped card.  Cut all my layers out and embossed my elephant and his ears with a Cuttlebug embossing folder.  I'm so sorry I can't remember the folder name.  I popped up his ears and envie to give it some more dimension. A little sanding on the ears and a little chalking and called it done.  For the inside I put Happy Birthday of course and "Sending TONS of love".  Please go over to BBTB2 and see what my design team sister have in store for you.  I hope that you feel inspired and decide to join us in this elephant challenge, just please read our simple rules for joining in and HAVE FUN!!

Very cute. I love this card. Elephants are so fun. I just found a really cute paper just like this one. It's great to know I can get a similar look without paying so much for the paper. Awesome job, Brenda. :)

Oh Brenda, this is so darn sweet. What a fabulous embossing folder you chose. It's the perfect one. Hope your grandson's first birthday is fantastic. We celebrated our youngest grandson's first birthday in May. It's so cute to see them dig into that cake.
