Happiest Birthday Wishes Simon Says Stamp Challenge Card

Today I had a play with my Polychromos colored pencils, and some Tim Holtz distress inks.  I used stamps from Simon Says Stamp! Birthday Celebration set.  
This little elephant is just so adorable, and I needed a birthday card for a little one whose birthday is coming up soon.  
I stamped the images with a very light gray distress ink, then colored it in the no-line coloring fashion with colored pencils.  I used distress inks for the phrase, and also for the brushed color along the edges.  Top-fold A2 size card, with some ink spatters, and a few Nuvo Jewel Drops.

I am adding my card to the The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge .
