Belated Birthday elephant

My mind has been letting me down.... I missed my friend's birthday on the 3rd so  quick belated birthday card for her.... thanks to the cute elephant from Wplus9 and the cute sentiment that went with it.

I started by sponging Distress Oxides inks - Shaded Lilac, Broken China and Crushed Pistachio and added some stars in Worn Lipstick and Delicata Gold.  Stamped and die cut the elephant and balloon and coloured with my Prismacolor pencils.  Added a bit of glossy accents to the balloon.

I must make myself a better list of the birthdays so I won't have to make belated birthday cards.
