Some Elebration Fun for Miss Em

I do recall my only older cousin having a very cute stuffed elephant toy when I was little.  I think he may have been a pale blue, possibly pink? - He was a talking Elephant by the name of Horton, for those of you who know the Dr Seuss story.  Anyway, when I saw the A La Carte stamp "Elebration" in the new catty, you can probably guess where abouts it sat on my wish list!!

Here is it's maiden outing, to make a 2nd birthday card for a sweet little girl Miss Em.  It was easy to colour with a few swipes of Watercolor Wonder crayons, and I teamed it with the very pretty "Cheerful Treat" DSP from the Hostess Gallery section of the catalogue - it's probably my fave of all the patterned papers this year!  The colours are Marina Mist, Melon Mambo, Lucky Limeade, Pink Pirouette, Concord Crush and Bashful Blue with crisp Whisper White and there is a great assortment of playful patterns to choose from, including this stripe.  I sponged the edges with Melon Mambo, and added a border using the lovely new Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch $30.95, half tucked behind the left side edge.  A few Basics Pearls and a banner greeting using a stamp from another great Hostess Gallery set,  "Happiest Birthday Wishes" and it was all done.    I'm looking forward to making a little boy version soon, this card was so much fun!
