At Pear Tree Designs this week the challenge is Birthday.A nice easy one I think – hope you agree!Our sponsor for this challenge is Robyn’s Fetish Digital Stamps and the lucky winner will get to choose 3 digi stamps of their choice!!Plus there is plenty of inspiration from the DT.So three very good reasons to play along this week – go on,you know you want to 😉

There is also a DT call for one member as we’re sadly losing the lovely and talented Karen.So pop on over for more details on how to apply.

For this card I’ve used ‘An Elephant never forgets’ from Robyn’s Fetish Digital Stamps.I just couldn’t resist this little (?) guy – he’s so cute and looks so full of fun!Plus I love elephants and he’s a fantastic example of one!He’s been coloured with Promarkers and I’ve used Glossy Accents for the spray of water he’s squirting out of his trunk.I was lucky that I managed to capture it on camera!Click on the pic for a larger view.The papers are K & Co and the cardstock is Papermania Textured.I’ve used a Martha Stewart Traditional Scallop Edge Punch and a large corner rounder.I cut some felt with a  Sizzix Bigz Flower,Beauty Bloom die and tied some embroidery thread around a large brad before fixing it in the centre.The sentiment comes from the Hero Arts  Elephants clear stamps set. The edges have been coloured with Promarkers and I’ve attached brads in each corner.Perfect for this card.
