The Elephant's Child in blue and green!

My post for The Squirrel and the Fox bloghop is here

Evening all! Don't get too close, I have a filthy cold! The only things I managed to do today were order pizza and make this card!

It's for my daughter to send to a friend who has just had a little boy. The image my daughter chose was this Woodware Baby Patch Elephant The text is from the same set. I was going to paper-piece him, but when I stamped him on this scrap of Kanban card he looked good already!

The papers are from 'Lion Sleeps' a 12 x 12 pad by K and Co which is full of gorgeous papers for little 'uns!

Here's a sideways view so you can see the elephants more clearly:

The ribbon is from Hobbycraft, the gems and stars are from stash. I also used a Woodware punch to round the top corners of the image mat, and distressed with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.

I want to enter the challenges at 2 Sisters Challenge where I found the fabulous sketch!
And also Come and Get It Challenges - I used Green, Ribbon and Gems.

Thanks for looking, I hope you all have a happy and healthy week!
