And the banner for the PPA301 Challenge:
I started with a Pool Party card base. On top of it, I layered Bermuda Bay cardstock, a strip of Silver Glimmer Paper and a Pool Party piece of DSP from the Cherry On Top DSP Paper Stack.
My sentiment was built using words from the Crazy About Stamp Set. It was cropped with the Project Life Cards and Labels Framelets Dies.
The sweet elephant (who never forgets a birthday) is from the new hostess set Love You Lots. I stamped him on Pool Party Cardstock and fussy cut him out. I used Dimensionals to pop him up on my card.
The elephant is holding a Crushed Curry balloon punched with the Balloon Punch. The balloon has a Bermuda Bay Baker's Twine string.
I can't wait to give this pretty card to a special friend.
