Good morning, There's a fun new challenge starting over at Fab 'n' Funky today, hosted by our lovely Jools who has set the theme of 'Happy'....the word happy must be visible on the front of your card. loads of scope there! We're sponsored this week by the fabulous Bugaboo, who allowed the DT each to pick a digi. I chose to use this cute little elephant Peaches Balloons to make my card as it's my future DIL's birthday today and she loves elephants! The image is coloured with copics , loads of sparkle on the balloons.  The 'happy' die is Hero Arts.
Thanks for calling by today, don't forget to take a look at the Fab N Funky Challenge Blog., there's some great inspiration from the rest of Team Funky!
Have a lovely day

Well just commented on Chrissy's blog and she has used a Buggaboo Elephant too, it could be the same one. Fabulous card, love the use of the orange and turquoise and the way you have done the sentiment.
