Birthday Elephant

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope you all are enjoying the weekend...I am! My son came home for his first visit since leaving for college 7 weeks ago! I am SO happy to see him!
Here is a card that I made for a couple of challenges. Everything was cut from Birthday Bash. I cut the shaped card base with the star mat and did a stitching line around the star. I cut the elephant, inked the edges, and stamped the eyes with a Peachy Keen face stamp. The banner I made by stamping the image to a banner and inked the edges. I cut a toothpick down and added some twine to the top with a piece of tape. Then I folded over the edge around the toothpick and glued it closed. To finish I added some buttons to the bottom corner.
I am going to enter this into the following challenges:
Die Cuttin Diva's- Include an elephant on your project
Celebrate The Occasion- Birthday and must include twine and at least 1 button
Thanks for stopping in today and have a wonderful weekend!
