My mums Mothers Day card using Bella the elephant

This is the card I made for my Mum for Mothers Day this year, I thought I had already posted it by I hadn't.

The base card is from Craftwork Cards and is called on the edge, all I have done is scored in the centre of the front and folded back on itself to add more dimension.

I have coloured my new image which is called Bella the elephant by Wild Rose Studio using Copic Pens, I have also used matching papers from the Bella range.

The die cuts are cut using Marianne Creatable dies and I have added some of Craftwork cards Card Candi round the image and in each point.

I am entering this card into the following challenges
