Simon Says meets a Pink Elephant

I managed two challenges with this card. I followed the Pink Elephant sketch and added the stitching that Simon Says requests this week.
I used one of  Eline Pellinkov's  adorable images from Marianne designs. This is one of Eline's Christmas toddlers. Just look at that smile, it certainly brings a smile to my face!!
She is coloured in Copics and distress inks with Polar White flower soft on her fur trims,  I added a silver bead to the clapper in her bell. The two panels are embossed with the cuttlebug Snowflake folders and the smaller one cut with the Ek Success punch and the cuttlebug die. I finished it with a greeting from Cornish Heritage Farms.

Image - Marianne designs - Eline's Toddlers
Medium - Copics and Ranger distress re-inkers
Papers - Plain and Bazzill cs
Tools  -  Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder & snowflake die  :  EK Success snowflake punch  :  Sewing machine
Embellishments - sentiment Cornish Heritage Farms  :  lace & pearls from stash

I was wondering what flower soft looked like - a little like flock? That's really effective. Fantastic colouring as usual, and the contrast stitching makes a great border.
Lovely card!
