One elephant went out to play

The theme of my card today is: my new stuff!  Everything except the cardstock and the Lawn Fawn stamps are new things that I haven't used yet on a project.  :)

The elephant on this card is cut from Paisley at 3.5 inches.  Isn't she spunky?  I got Paisley on clearance at Hobby Lobby for $15!  I was so excited that day.  I stamped on her heinie with my new Versamark ink and Lawn Fawn's Jessie's ABCs.  I don't know how I didn't know about Versamark before.  I am loving it.  Even my husband thought it was pretty cool when I tested it out and showed him.

The yellow cardstock behind the elephant was embossed with a Quickcutz Flowers embossing folder, and the blue strip along the bottom is We R Memory Keepers washi tape.  She's popped up on some pop dots for a little extra depth.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
