I am beyond thrilled to say that I am a Guest Designer today

The challenge this week is a color challenge. These colors are
perfect for so many different themes. Check out the design team
and all they've created to inspire you. I hope you'll join
us in this fantastic challenge.

I didn't realize it until I was listing the products that I used on
this card but the only stamping I did was the outline of the
elephant. This was mostly die cuts. All the products are listed below.

Happy Stampin'

  1. Susan, your little elephant with his bouquet of pink balloons is absolutely darling; a most inspiring card for our Ink challenge! Thrilled you're our guest designer and delighted to discover that you're a fellow Canadian. I live down the road a bit, in Canmore...Wishing you a wonderful Saturday!

    1. Hey neighbor! thanks for the compliment - I was away from my computer since yesterday and just saw the posting now - very exciting! :) :) :)

  2. Fabulous card Susan, love the design and fab colouring of the elephant. We are thrilled to have you as our GD for this challenge x

    1. Hi Sandie - thanks so much for the compliment and the opportunity to guest with all you talented ladies.

  3. Congratulations with the GD spot Susan! Pink and grey is perfect for your cute elephant birthday card!

  4. This has such a fabulous design - I love that it's mainly down the left-hand side with the small elephant and the pink pink balloons - so cute! And the soft shades you chose are so lovely. The embossing on the background gives it great texture and extra interest. Love it! Thanks so much for being our wonderful Guest Designer at Inkspirational.

  5. Congratulations on your GD spot! Super cute card!!!

  6. Congrats on your GD spot. Love your adorable card.

  7. Fantastic card, Susan! Love that cute little elephant holding those pink balloons. So glad you could join us as GD at Ink! :-)

  8. This is so cute! That little elephant is so fun and the balloon bouquet looks fantastic. I also like the subtle use of design paper and the bold, black sentiment against the white. It is great to have you designing with us this week! Congrats on the guest designer spot!
