Card - Elephant

Created for the Sunday Sketch & Stamp Challenge.  I really enjoyed making this.  The image is a digi I printed off probably a year ago - I found him when re-organizing yesterday.  I only picked him up because he looked like he would fit nicely in a circle shape that was needed for the challenge.  He turned out way cuter than I thought he would.

You have used very pretty embellishments and the whole card has come together beautifully, you have such diverse styles and skills and I think that it what makes me want to follow you so much, there is so much that I can learn from you within any media.
