Welcome Sweet Baby

Hi Everyone!
What a day we had yesterday. We had the honor of watching the Space Shuttle land at LAX. What a momentous event. It was really spectacular, I have lots of pics but can't find my cord to get them off my phone :( I'll look this evening.
So I saw some fun challenges and thought I would play along. Paper Playtime is having a "Use your punches & add a sentiment & Die Cuttin Divas - Create a project using an elephant. I'm not quite sure why, but I never have a baby card on hand when I need it.  So perfect opportunity to place one in the card drawer :)
Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

This little elephant is from the Cricut Cartridge New Arrival

The peachy face is a combo of Stamps - PK-754 Critter Faces SET A Medium (eyes) & PK-460 Happy Lashes Face Assortment (Mouth) I added the extra detail to the nose and eyes.

I used a Martha Stewart Punch for the bottom of the card and added the yellow polka dot paper on the inside.
Card - 4.25" x 5.5"
Paper - Recollections & Bazzill
