Welcome Baby

Good morning! another week is starting and this year is flying by.
I'm sure that a colleague of my husband is looking forward to what this year brings. She is due to have a baby girl in the next month and I have made this cute card to go with the gift we have bought for her:

Isn't this elephant just the cutest? She is from Lili of the Valley and is called Blowing Bubbles , she is available as a digital and rubber stamp. 
I used the digital so I could resize her for my project. I colored the image with alcohol markers adding colored pencil to darken my shading.
Once colored I die cut the image using Gina Marie's Oval Scalloped Frame dies. These cut the image and a frame around it. I the colored the white section of the frame blue so it would stand out against my patterned background paper. 
The paper is from a collection which was also sold by Lili of the Valley but is no longer available. I added the pink It's a girl ribbon from my stash and a couple of stamped baby tags again from Lili of the Valley.

Thanks for stopping by and if you like what you see it's always nice to know by leaving me a comment.
