BBTB2 - Elephantly Speaking

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Hope you had a great weekend! Are you ready for another fun Cricut challenge at BBTB2! Our talented design team sister Shelly chose Elephantly Speaking- use an elephant from any cartridge on your card, layout or project.
My card measures 5" x 6 1/2" white cardstock. The birthday paper is The Paper Studio Birthday Extravaganza Paper pad. All the papers were in my scrap stack.
Cricut cartridge:
Celebrate With Flourish - I really like the cuts on this cartridge! The elephant is wearing a cute party hat and I thought the cut would be good for a birthday card.  Elephant is cut 3.5".
Of course, I needed a balloon! The balloon is cut at 2.5" and is wrapped under the tail of the elephant.
Other supplies:
3 Girl Jam ribbon,  pop-dots on the elephant and balloon, and a little wiggle eye.

Be sure to visit BBTB2 and check out all the cute and inspiring elephant projects by the design team. For more information on the projects, visit the individual blogs. We appreciate your visits and comments!
Now it is your turn to play along with us! Remember this is a Cricut challenge and you must use an elephant cut on your project. Please mention in your blogpost which cartridge was used.

Just a reminder, you still have a week to play along with our "Fly Away" challlenge. You must use a hot air balloon or an airplane if you do not have a hot air balloon cut.

Thanks for your visits and comments!
