"I Wouldn't Forget" to Play in the Hoedown This Week!

It's Wednesday, and that means it's Hambo Hoedown time! Today's challenge is to make a celebratory card using the new Party Elephant digi image and some sparkle! I love glitter and sparkly things and this challenge was a lot of fun. 
How could I not make my elephant pink?  It's my favorite color! I chose to make a baby card and use up more of those flowers I have in my stash! I am determined to make a dent

I used Bubble Gum Glitter (Sparkle N Sprinkle) on the party hat, a Spica Glitter (Copic) pen on his eyes and mouth, and added bling with the sparkly pink flower gems (Hero Arts).
It's a baby girl delight! Check out what the other Bacon Bits did HERE. Play along in the challenge and you might be chosen to be a Guest Designer for April in the Hambo Hoedown! FREEBIES every week!
