Baby Elephant Card

This card was supposed to be posted last night for the awesome Midnight Madness challenge, but day 8 of work in a row took it's toll and I crashed instead of blogging. I've got 4 more days until a day off but couldn't stay away from blogland tonight. This was a super quick and easy card, perfect for a baby shower. The pink heart gem was an afterthought. I tried to use a Spica to add a bit of glitz to the image, and forgot they don't work well with water based inks. The heart from the image bled a bit, so I got creative with a cover-up.
