Funky Fossil - "Wild Things" Elephant Birthday Card

I've made a birthday card for a little one today using the Funky Fossil "Wild Things" stamp set.  

I used a leafy embossing folder that came with a magazine for the background and covered it with two shades of Distress Oxide Inks.  First with "Cracked Pistachio" and then on the leaf areas I used "Mowed Lawn".

I stamped the elephant in the middle of the green base and also on a piece of plain white card, using Versafine Clair "Morning Mist" grey ink.

I then stamped the sentiment, using a Personal Impressions stamp set called "Double Sayings" in Versafine Clair "Nocturne" ink.

I then painted the elephant on the white piece of card, using two shades of Distress Oxide Inks:  Weathered Wood and Spun Sugar.  I fussy cut the coloured elephant shape and adhered it onto the card over the outline image of the elephant.
