LOC Welcome Little One

I have something cute to show you today - this adorable little elephant from the Layers of Color Polka Dot Parade art stamp set - isn't he adorable!?

This time he is welcoming a little one - yes, a girl.  I created this card for my dear friend Ann - who became a Grandmother for the second time - congratulations Ann and family!  One thing I am sure of, this little girl is going to be spoilt, but not ruined!  LOL!

The image is stamped onto white card using Tsukineko Versafine, coloured with SU Chalks and cute out with the Spellbinders Classic Oval sLG Nestibilitie using the Grand Calibur.  It is layered into the Beaded Ovals.

I have used the Nestibilitie as a mask and sponged using Tim Holtz Victorian Velvet Distressing Ink.  Texture has been added to the polka dots with 3D Kindy Glitz.

The sentiment is from the Sentimental Banners art stamp set - I love the way it coordinates with the Spellbinders Ribbon Banners Die - makes it so easy!

and of course the flowers - a must on a card welcoming a Princess!

This card is for the following challenges:
