Birthday Bash Elephant

Good Afternoon Bloggers! I made a card last night to enter two challenges: Paper Cutz Challenge #104 and Celebrate The Occasion Challenge #26. Paper Cutz asked us to use only the colors: Turquoise, Red, Black and White and Celebrate the Occasion asked for an easel Birthday card. Here is how I married the two:

Turquoise, Black and White CS - Recollections. Red patterned paper is from DCWV Paper Stack 7. Ribbon and Rhinestones are from Michaels. I also used Turquoise Stickles on ear and tail.
I used Elephant from Birthday Bash cut at 3.25 inches. The circle I used my Martha Stewart circle cutter and it is also 3.25 inches and I stamped it with a Tim Holtz stamp to make the background. The red matte I used Elegant Edges Dots Oblong shadow cut at 5.25". The Happy Birthday stamp is from a cling stamp set that I can't remember the name of right now, lol. I also used Viva Decor Black pearl pen to make the eyes pop.

That's my card. I hope you like it. Paper Cutz challenge ends tonight at midnight but CTO doesn't end until Sunday night, so you have time to try your hand at an easel card. Have a great night.
