Another Post Today~Merci~Grazie~Thanks

This card acutally started out to be just a practice piece for me to use my Koh-Noor woodless colour pencils I just bought. I picked these little elephants from SU's set "Just Celebrate" as they looked easy! I did Gina K's technique uisng odorless mineral spirits and a blending stump (both purchased from her). The SU cardstocks I used were Pretty In Pink, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and Whisper White. I had a small piece of the diamond DS paper and the colors were perfect, so of course IHAD to use my Cuttlebug Diamond embossing folder. My first thought was to make it a baby card or a birthday card, but as I was getting my sentiments out I came across this $1 stamp I had purchased at Michael's some time ago, and thought it was perfect for this card! And, how about those little brads with the ribbon tabs, aren't they just the cutest?

Could you post a link to Gina K's website? I love the elephants! Is this one of the sets that are going to be discontinued?
