This week's challenge over at BBTB2 has been chosen by our lovely DT sister Caroline who asked us to create a card for a new arrival as she is shortly to become a grandma again. Congratulations Caroline!

I couldn't resist this cute baby elephant from the MS Birthday Cake Art cartridge!  My cuts are done at 5 3/4" and I welded 2 shadow cuts together using Cricut Design Studio to make a shaped card and also cut a separate shadow on its own to add to the front of the card (all cut using white cardstock). For my base cut I used Pink and white polka dot paper from a MAMBI stack and the white dots are flock so it feels lovely and soft to touch. Welcome baby girl is a cuttlebug die and before pop dotting the base cut to the card I added a pink dummy (pacifier) to her trunk tied with some black ribbon and a googly eye.

Pop over to BBTB2 and see the wonderful new baby projects the DT have created this week and jpin in our challenge!

Thans so much for visiting!

This card is too cute Julie! I love this elephant, wish I had that cart!! You sentiment is too cute on the behind of this sweet elephant! I have a friend this card would be perfect for. It is her first grandbaby and the parents are using the theme "Elephants". So I might try to lift this card! lol I'm sure mine won't come out as cute as yours! Hugs!!
