Summer Birthday

This fun elephant is called CARMEN BurlesquEphant digi stamp by Rick St. Dennis.  I added a bunch of scrap papers I have laying around (not sure where they were from),.  I added a stick pin I made into a couple pieces of tulle and some gems.  I colored the elephant using Prismacolor pencils and gel pens.  For the gel pens I traced the black lines then used a blending stick to spread the color (this is easily done since the gel pen stays wet for so long).

Here is CARMEN


Here is my card
