Cute Elephant

My great niece was five years old last weekend and as she recently told me she doesn't like fairies or princesses, I decided to use a cute elephant image.  We joined in Eve's birthday celebrations on Sunday and as Eve lives near where we keep our caravan, we took the opportunity to have a few days back down in Devon again to enjoy the sea air.  

The card base was cut with a Presscut Step die and I used a pre-coloured digistamp, 'Ellie with Daisy', from Beccy's Place.  The panels were embossed with a Cuttlebug 'Daisy Pattern' embossing folder.  The daisies were punched from snippets of white and yellow card.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
Beccy's Place - April Challenge ~ Use one of Beccy's images
Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 223 ~ Use Snippets
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge ~ Happy Birthday

Your great niece sounds like a girl who knows what she likes... and it was very sweet of you to make her something personal. I love the way you added her name to the bottom of the card and I also like the line of pretty daisies. Well done Liz!
