An Elephant Never Forgets ..............

I make my cards to sell to raise funds for different charities.  I am truly blessed that over the years of me doing this very kind crafters on blogs and on Facebook have sent me things to use.  I also put anything I win in challenges to good use for my cards for charity.  There are also blogs/people on Facebook that offer freebies and these mean so much to me as I can use these as well.  Recently Debbi Moore had this gorgeous little elephant as a freebie on her Facebook page and I thought I'd show you what I made with it.

The freebie design sheet came with a gorgeous backing papers which I used as well.  On Debbi Moore's design sheets what I like is that she doesn't waste any leftover space once you have the main images.  Instead you may find things like borders, sentiments and embellishments eg flowers, shapes, buttons etc.  This sheet came with the main image of the elephant along with the cut little head shot of the elephant, border, sentiments and heart shape.

Looking at the image I simply added a cream card blank and matting and layering was done with kraft card.

Apart from the elements off the design sheet the card has been finished off with a large organza ribbon bow and button.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Through the Craft Room Door - Anything goes
Artistic Inspirations - Anything goes
Papertake Weekly - Build it up
