Baby Girl Elephant Card!

Hello~~Meet "Baby Elephant" by Crissy Armstrong!!!
Isn't this just the sweetest baby elephant!!!  I had a request for a baby girl easel card and..... the baby's room theme is Teal and elephants--How cute!!!:D
Here is my card....................Tell me what you think!!!
Colored Baby Elephie with copics and pastel pencils.  Cut out with SB Circle nestie and matted with SB scallop nestie and third layer was a SB scallop octagon nestie.  Image edges softened with SU Taken w/teal ink and blinged with Viva Decor glitter liner pen.  The sentiment is from a NEW Blog I found one day~~~Netty's Cards...and she has freebies!! Click Here to check out her fun stuff!!!!  THANKS NETTY!!!!
Easel Card was made using dp's from DCWV Garden Party (teal) and KandCo. Specialty Pack.  If you look close you will see corners on front were punched with MS scallop 3 dot corner punch and the Kand Co dp was dry embossed with CB swiss dot folder and then I swiped dots with SU Taken w/teal ink.  
Base was designed the same only the dry embossed teal scallop circle mat was dry embossed with different CB folder and once again swiped with SU teal ink. **TIP for TTT~~for dry embossing to really stand out just swipe it with ink to darken pattern as you see above!!!! The verse is Hampton Art--Love and Joy-- stamp. Used TH spun sugar ink and softened edges with SU taken teal while still in SB nesties. Edged with Viva Decor Glitter Liner pen--added MS butterflies and Prima Pearl swirls--which were used throughout the card--on sentiment, butterflies, base!!
The SB oval on middle of card is for personal message to be written is desired :)

Oh Mary Lou, I am so pleased that you emailed me to let me know you'd used one of my digi sentiments. I just adore how you've attached it to your card. I thought there was acetate there at first, then I saw the metal coil, really great idea. Thanks so much for the fab credit in your posting. Love your card, the elephant is adorable and beautifully coloured. Annette xx
