BBTB2 "Elephantly Speaking" Challenge

This week at BBTB2 the lovely Shelly came up with the fun challenge for all of us "Elephantly Speaking."  I found this adorable little guy on the Holiday Cakes cartridge page 38 cut at 3 inches.   
One of our BBTB2 follower recently made a card using the Folded Angle Card.  I had benchmarked the tutorial link so decided to give it a try. 
Ckick for Tutorial 
I am giving this to my daughter. She is a Special Ed teacher and has just finished two years of Saturday classes and extra work load as she works to clear her credential.  I know it was a lot of work and I am really proud of her.  
The stamp is from a Stampin Up set 
Paper K and Company 
Number 11 cut from Birthday Bash 2 inches.  
Remember you have two weeks to join us for the  "Elephantly Speaking" challenge and one more week to join in for the "Fly Away" Challenge.  Happy craftin!
