Happiest Birthday wishes for you

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge had a moodboard, similar to the Lawnscaping one.
I don´t really have beachy themed stampsets.
I do have the mermaids for you and the happy days from SSS, I´ve been thinking about how to use the colors with the images I have.
In the end I chose to use the Simon Says Stamp 3x4 birthday celebration set and ditch the Lawn Fawn ones, but I used a strip of Lawn Fawn paper ;-)
There´s a grey in one of the mood boards and blues and yellows, not my favorite colors so that could be why I found it hard to be inspired.
The grey is perfect for an elephant and a yellow balloon and blue tinted hat seemed logical.

I stamped everything with Memento tuxedo black ink on Neenah solar white ultra smooth card and colored with Spectrum Noir and Copic markers.
I masked off the elephant´s trunk to stamp the
Usually I use greys to ground images, but now I used the blue tones from the mood boards.

I cut the panel naroower than the cardbase. Attached the grey stiped Lawn Fawn paper (let's polka 12x12) to the cardbase with tape runner and added a strip of yellow paper too, to repeat the color of the balloon, covered the strip in Wink of Stella clear and the balloon with glossy accents.

Mounted the panel with foamtape on the cardbase.
