Adorable Elephant

I am back with another {PIN}Spirational Challenges card.  With Valentine's Day later this week--I wanted to make a card with a love theme!

Here's the photo to inspire us:

Floppy Latte's Digital Designs  kindly provided digital images for this challenge.Isn't this elephant just the cutest image!  THANK YOU, Floppy Latte's

I used sheer pink ribbon with hearts on it and placed it over some pink velvet ribbon I have in my stash--I think it turned out well.  Then--I inked up one of my favorite Stampin' Up sentiment sets and used my oval punches for the layers.
