Polka dot elephant

Hi there!

I won't be blogging for a few short days as I'm heading on over to a camp, so I thought I'd quickly share this card I made a couple weeks ago...

Is it just me or do polka dots and elephants seem to go really well together? Then again, polka dots look nice with pretty much any animal image. ;)

Instructions: Trim and score card base, round edges. Stamp sentiment onto coral paper, and than stamp image twice onto green polka dot paper. Cut out and paper piece image, tie bow around trunk, than adhere to white paper. Adhere white paper to blue polka dot paper, and distress edges of white and patterned paper. Adhere heart sticker on white paper using a foam square. Adhere stamped sentiment paper onto base, and tie knot with ribbon around base. Add embellished center rectangle to base using foam squares. Distress edges of card base.

Enjoy your week and thanks for popping in! :)
