Happy Birthday Lorie!!!!

Good Morning everyone!!
Today is a very special day! 
It is Lorie's 50th birthday and a few of her friends have gotten together to flood her with love and of course birthday cards and wishes!
We have created this hop so you can visit all the blogs that have created a card for Lorie. Stop by one or all and see just what Lorie means to all of us crafters!

~Lorie if you are stopping by to see your card that I made, I just wanted to let you know that you ROCK!!! You are one of the sweetest and most talented crafters I know! You are an AMAZING team leader and I wish you the Happiest Birthday!!!! May your day be filled with lots of love and happiness!
Hugs to you my friend!~

Now for the card I made for Lorie! She should be getting it in the mail very shortly!
Hope you like it!
For my card I used the designer paper from MME~Market paper pad. I did add some wonky (LOL...that's a word right??) machine stitching to the border and set it aside to work on the rest. Using the adorable Elephant from the Elephant Parade stamp set, I paper pieced her using matching designer paper. Some white gel pen and chalk and she was done. Using the Tag Die from MCT, I placed my Elephant on top, along with her cute party hat. I stamped the sentiment using the June SOTM kit and then added some enamel dots. I thought my card was missing something so I die cut the banner and draped it over the corner. Still missing something, I stamped the sentiment "PARTY" using the Reto-bet Round stamp set. Colored the letters in with my copics and then added the finishing touch....some bling!
