Birthday Card for Bibi

Hello.  Welcome.   Gail from the design team here today.  I have made a birthday card for Bibi.  Have you heard?  In December Bibi celebrates her 50th birthday, so today I am sharing a birthday card for her. 

A whole herd of elephants on their way to Bibi's birthday party.  I used MME patterned paper and stamped the elephant from African Animals and the sentiment from Happy Birthday.  I coloured with distress inksI've used the colours from Rubber Dance's November challenge:

Inside is a little surprise.......

This is a tealight card.  It can hold 6 tealights, or 50 cake candles LOL.  I stamped one of the flowers from Textured Flower with Picked Raspberry distress ink.  The giraffe is from African Animals.  29 again??? is from Funny Birthday.  The awesome birthday sentiment was embossed with black powder.  I cut the circle apertures using Simon Says Stamp Luminary Circles die.  You can find the instructions for this card here.

Thanks for dropping by. 
You can find all the stamps I used, and many more, in
