Elephant aloft!

I made this card today for my sister-in-law's birthday (which is next week).  I wanted to play along with the My Favorite Things sketch challenge, because I got this sweet elephant stamp set in the mail this week, and was itching to get it inky!

I followed the sketch by incorporating the horizontal bands in the sketch as my rows of clouds in the background of my card.
I'm also sharing his card at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge - the theme is "New", and this "Adorable Elephants" stamp set is new to me!

I'll also be sharing this card at Time Out challenge - their theme is "Birthdays with the optional Technique Twist of adding sponging."
