Happy Elephant!

This elephant is one of the new cute animal stamps from alota Rubber Stamps .... I just love this image ........ so cute.

The layout for this card is taken from a sketch I found on CPS web site this week ..... as soon as I saw the sketch I was trying to decide which stamp could use with it ..... I decided upon this elephant image.... I also found some paper in with my black & grey scraps that reminded me on elephant skin so I decided to use that for the top and bottom panels of this card. I didn't have grey brads (note to self look for grey brads) ..... so I used my alcohol pens to color white ones grey! I also added 2 rows of paper piercing along each side of the elephant image.

Recipe:
Stamps: Elephant & verse - alota Rubber Stamps
Paper: White, Black & Dark Grey
Other: Black Ink; White Brads; Black Brads; Ticket Corner Punch; Paper Piercing Mat & Tool
