Elephant Topper Birthday Wishes

I'm back, again! Hop you aren't getting tired of seeing me everyday! LOL!  I'm here to remind you that its Freebie friday at Bugaboo Stamps! Jodie has a real cutie for us, today, too, so definitely do not miss out on this one!  Gotta love this Elephant topper! He's yours, free, for one week only, so hurry over to Bugaboo Stamps and get this adorable little fella for your very own!

If you want to see more of him, and how he's inspired the creativity of the rest of the DT, check out the other fabulous creations at Catch The Bug!

My card features this week's Freebie Friday image, Elephant topper, colored with Promarkers, by Bugaboo Stamps.  I paired him with a fun mix of papers, as well as a grey embossed circleused as a pocket, for him to peek over the top of!  All papers are from my stash.  I went with a male birthday card, for this round, because its something I never seem to have enough of.  The elephant image is attached to a tag that pulls up from the circle pocket. My sentiment is by Sentiments 4 You and punched with oval and scalloped oval punches.  I used black pearls to embellish, and finished off with wiggly eyes for the elephant.

For my card layout, I used the sketch below, from Sketch N Stash.
