Heffalump Birthday

Today's card features a cute elephant stamp by Rachelle Anne Miller (for Crafter's Companion). I coloured him using watercolour pencils to match the papers from the 'Wildflowers pad by My Mind's Eye. I inked all of the edges using 'Pumice Stone' Distress Ink, then distressed the edges a little, before adding some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The flowers are by Dovecraft, the brad is BasicGrey, the sentiment stamp is from the 'Critter Party' set by Penny Black, and the twine is from the Ribbon Girls.
