Elephant Ballerina...

Saw this image at Dearie Dolls [a Freebie!] and I laughed - it goes perfectly with this sentiment!  I know someone on my card list will like it!  In case it is too hard to read... the sentiment says: 
"It's your birthday!  Hope you laugh until cake and ice cream come out of your nose."
The trunk and bow were printed a 2nd time, sculpted and fussy cut so I could pop them up.  I used an SU punch to create the window in the front panel. aligned on the inside is the SU 'happy birthday'.
The inside is completed with leftover DP [that is Studio Calico's Heyday Collection] from the front.
I used Copics to color her, added a ribbon and bow and I painted on her skirt with gold glitter nail polish that I got at the Dollar Store.  You can barely see the glitter even in real life - guess that is what I get at the Dollar Store!

Create wildly and color with abandon!  ~ginny
