Elephants Never Forget.....

......which would make the Clearly Besotted stamp I've used on this card perfect for birthdays even though the set is called 'baby shower'. I stamped the elephant, cut it using the matching die then fixed it to a hammered effect card base with glue dots and I positioned the gold peel-off sentiments to look as though the nelliephant is spraying the 'happy birthdays'. Finally I wrapped a piece of ribbon around the card and added a die-cut star with peel-off '2u' (and as I hadn't got any peel-off letters I cheated and cut a 0 in half).

I shall enter this in the following challenges
Cuttlebug 2nd anniversary challenge 'festive project with a number 2'
Simon Says Monday challenge 'lions and lambs'
As You Like It challenge 'favourite type of stamp - rubber or digi - and why' (mine has to be rubber as they are great for when you want to use up smaller pieces of card or print awkward shapes)
Craft Stamper Take It Make It challenge 'anything goes with a stamp'

and seeing as I used snippets of card for the die-cuts I shall head over to Pixie's Snippets Playground to let this Nellie run amok.

Thanks for popping by and I'll be back this evening with my candy post.

Ha, ha - I wondered what all the commotion was in the Playground :) Brilliant card Andrea and how clever of you to use the number 0 cut in half for a U. Bit of lateral thinking there :)
