Elephants to make you Smile

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter.  We spent our weekend in San Antonio at a horse show.  My daughter Roxanne is a para-equestrian with hopes for a team spot on the Paralympic Team that will compete in Rio in 2016.  San Antonio is lovely this time of year.  Wildflowers blooming everywhere and beautiful rolling green hills.  Needless to say, I did not get any crafting done.  But I will share my card that I finished for a coworker that is having a baby in the next 2 weeks.
The inspiration was from Making Cards Fun Blog Hop.  I was not able to find the original posting.  I love the group blog hops from this group.  They use all the latest and come up with some very original ideas.
I am calling this card, Welcome Baby. .  This is a shaker card,  Each Ellie is a separate shaker window.   The stamp set is from Wplus9, Unforgetable.   The border is cut using spellbinders A2 Borders 1. Smile is a die cut from Paper Smoochies, smile and love.  This was cut from silver glitter paper, backed with a "smile" cut from black and then the whole card was "glitzed" with a shimmer spray in silver.  You can't really see it in the picture.   Peachy Pink Base Cardstock is Bazzel, The pattern paper, is unknown, a lose piece of paper separated from it's stack (I have so many of these),  Coloring was done with copics.   I really like this card, perfect for a baby girl.

Enjoy until Tomorrow!

Welcome Baby
