First of all using my computer and printer I did a copy and paste to a Word doc. and created a background sheet using the single clover. I then printed that out, sponged on some light blue color with a Tim Holtz tool and colored it in with Copics. I also did a copy and paste of the circle elephant image and repeated it several times so that I have more of the image printed out for future use. This was also colored with my Copics.
For the focal design I used a couple Cheery Lynn Designs circle dies to cut out the image and also a frame to layer it on. I also die cut the pattern paper and another outer layer using a die set from Die-Namics.
Once I had all the layers assembled and added to the base card of white card stock I added a ribbon bow and some light green rhinestone jewels in each corner.
There was a sufficient amount of the pattern paper left that I had created so I added it to a strip of darker green card stock and placed it inside the card. The last step was to add the sentiment.

One can also print out a pre-colored Edward Elephant image but I chose to color my own version of him. It feels more like regular stamping and I do love to color anyway!
I am entering this card into the Mod Squad Blog Challenge in which we are to add some bling.
I thank you for stopping in and your comments always make me feel so good.
