Birthday Elephant

Hi everyone! It's time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday! 

This time around the "Toppings" options is "Critters". I love it, and have lots of critter stamps! But remember, you can also chose to do an Anything Goes birthday card, the choice is yours.

My challenge was which critter stamp set to use, but I finally settled on this cute little elephant from Simon Says Stamp which was a free gift on my birthday month. It's a super simple card, just stamps, paper and ink. I'm doing a lot of clean and simple cards these days, partly for lack of time!

I'm also playing along with the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge, which is Kids Birthday. 

Products Used:
Stamp Sets: Birthday Celebration (Simon Says Stamp)
Card Stock: Solar White (Neenah), Surf Blue, Lipstick Red (Simon Says Stamp)
Patterned Paper: Polar Pals (Doodlebug)
Ink Pads: Tuxedo Black (Memento)
Markers: Copic

I'm so glad you paid me a visit today! If you have a moment please leave a comment, then visit the rest of the wonderful Design Team at Seize the Birthday and check out our collection of critters! We'd love for you to play along, too!

Inky hugs :)

Sandy, this elephant is so cute! I'm not really a "kids" card kind of girl, as I had trouble with this week's challenge, but you nailed it with this sweet card. Thank you for joining us at Stamp, Ink, Paper! So nice to see you there too! Crystal
