That Elephant...

Hi and welcome!  This week I received an order of much-"needed" crafty supplies and included in the order was the super-cute Unforgettable set by WPlus9.  Who doesn't love those adorable wee elephants?  So, of course, I had to ink them up and get out the Copics to make a card using them.



I used the current sketch from Deconstructed Sketches, the colors from ColourQ and the inspiration pic from Card Concept (my card is Clean and Layered).

I stamped and colored this adorable little elephant and his party hat before cutting them with the matching dies.  For the background, I stamped a Graph Background stamp onto white cardstock using Fog ink for a soft graphic background.  Lots of stitched dies were also put to good use as well as some of the pieces from my new Blueprints die sets.




I hope it's okay with the ColourQ ladies, but I went with Smoke instead of Basic Gray to create a softer looking card.

Oh Karren, I've been drooling of that stamp set since it was released. So so adorable... great minds think a like, I was about to use both of those challenges as well with the same colours as you did in a card that I made last night. Such a cute card! Love it!
