A Birthday Challenge

I am so excited.....I was able to nab a "Ketchup & Fries" tomato & potato plant today at my favourite local garden store.  I also picked up the rest of my tomato plants. In addition, I got lime and plain basil; 2 orange peppers; 1 hot pepper; and 6 sweet corn. I have planted the basil already and am planning which tomatoes will go where along with my marigolds. I have some Lancinato kale that has flowered and I am just waiting until I can harvest the seed pods. I might plant my Ketchup & Fries plant there since I have a specific plot for the rest of my plants.

Anyhow, I am joining the Anything Goes Birthday Challenge over at Seize The Birthday.
I made another Birthday card using this sweet elephant set, Unforgettable, from WPlus9. I used this lovely yellow patterned paper from retired Babycakes. I used Whisper cardstock for the Heart embossed border and main mat. The scalloped border is from Slate cardstock. I cut the sentiment circle with a Stitched Circle Die from Simon Says Stamp.

All of the stamped images are from Unforgettable. I coloured the elephant and balloon in with my Shin Han Alcohol Markers. I used Black and Pixie ink for the stamping. I finished the card off with some Epoxy Stars that I coloured with my Shin Han Markers, also.
All supplies are Close To My Heart, unless noted.
