Circus Birthday Card

This is a triple challenge card. My time for stamping seems to be so limited these days I save all sorts of challenges for the weekends and then work like a mad woman to combine them, LOL. It's supposed to mean less work but I feel like it really makes my brain work harder. Guess that's good in my old age, eh? Anyhoo, for this card I used Beate's weekend sketch challenge, Sharon's Stamp Simply Challenge to use color blocking, and the SCS Inspiration Challenge based on Boodalee Bedding.

The elephant is from "Year After Year" (such a flexible stamp set), the paper is a combination of Cerise DP and Bashful Blue DP (in the hostess DP set, Level 1). I used my 1/4" square punch to punch out "happy" from the "Birthday Whimsy" stamp set. The ribbon is SU!s Bashful Blue Grosgrain Ribbon. The card for one of my son's little buddies who will be celebrating his 4th birthday next weekend at Romp 'n Roll. Talk about a 3-ring circus -- a roomful of 4 year olds dashing about, jacked up on cake and ice cream. Woohoo!!!

Here's the sketch and the sheet closeup so you can see where I went with it:
