....Baby Makes Three

I made a card for the Outlawz Progressive Freebie challenge.  We received a sweet image called,       " Cute Elephant with Baloon Bird" from Gerda Steiner Designs this month.

I thought the image would be perfect for a baby card. I used the Sketch from Cheerful Sketches #22- and it worked so perfectly with the elephant image. The Sentiment is from Create with TLC.  I colored the image with Copics, and added a little "0" on a towel and blotted over the image for texture. I added Memory Box butterfly die and used a Cheery Lynn die for cutting out the image. The DP is Bo Bunny from my stash.

I squealed with delight when I saw the elephant! I love those critters! I am curious what you meant by little "o"? The texture is fantastic and I'd love to copy it... so you must share what is "o"?

Wow you have been busy on the blog! It happens that way for me - sometimes I'm cranking out the cads and other months (lately) it's crickets ❤️ Great card and cute for the new babies of Spring!
