Yes, and bunnies aren't pink, but we make them pink all the time. I love your brown elephant, and I love Bugaboo stamps! Such great coloring and an adorable card. So good to see this in our Stitching Challenge at Dies R Us!

I really like the frame you made for this image combining cleaner lines with decorative details and stitching, and your card is so sweet. Can't wait to see what you show for day 3 of the birthday bash!
