Funky Elephant Birthday Card

The last time I used this cute elephant from Hambo Stamps, I had over 5 requests for my card-lol! I also won Queen of the Hoedown!! Woot woot :)  He is just so cute I thought I would use him again (well, that and I forgot to email Hambo after my entry so I didn't get the new stamp this week-boo!)
Anywho, the challenge this week at the Hambo Hoedown is to use bold colours and do some paper piecing. Bold colours are something I don't use a lot of, so I thought a fun birthday card would suit my paper pieced elephant for this challenge. Here is my bright card:
The elephant is paper pieced and his head is popped up off his body. I also paper pieced his hat with my polka dot border strip.

Since we have so many occasions in May (mother's day, anniversaries, birthdays etc) I would like to enter this also into Stamping Vacations Challenge : Special month-anything about May

Check back for more cards. I try and post daily and hope you find yourself inspired :)
