A Birthday card for a little girl

My niece is turning three soon ( such an adorable age) and her favorite place on earth is the "Zoo". She loves going to the zoo to look at animals, especially the elephants. So for her birthday card, I decided to bring the zoo to her...or at least as much as I could fit in to my center step card.
If  I could, I am sure I would have fit in some more Magnolia stamps in my card, but I had to stop at six :)

The card is a center step card. The grass is simply hand cut from a green strip of paper. The clouds are also hand drawn, cut and edged with glitter. The sentiment is hand written.

Coloring all these animals and of course, Tilda, was a lot of fun. Do animals blush or not ???? In any case, I decided to give the elephant some rosy cheeks.... but not Miss MuuMuu

The two Tilda images are
Tilda with the Kookaburra
Tilda with a cute lamb

The tag at the farthest, hidden in a pocket, is available for writing personalized messages.

The card does neatly fit in to an envelope for mailing. Surprisingly, with all the different stamps and fussy cutting, it ends up being quite flat!
