A Pink Elephant for a Pink Elephant challenge

I've actually managed to finish a card - Whoopee!! I've had a totally MANIC week and it isn't over yet as I am working tomorrow, but I shall be glad when it is.

I started this card for the Pink Elephant challenge on Monday (ot it could have been Tuesday. I went to a local craft shop and the lady in there was really pushing me to buy this stamp and a little birdie one as well. Having seen what Julie had done with it I didn't resist very hard.

I've used brown bazzill and downloaded papers. Coloured my elephant with pastels, added a flower, a ribbon and a border using an EK Success punch and voila - one card.

Materials
BC - brown bazzill : BP - Verena Karolyi download : Image - Clear stamps : Derwent pastels : Sentiment - Inkadinkado : Leone Em branch punch : Cuttlebug & round nesties : EK Success border/corner punch : Ribbon. spacer and brad from stash.

What's that saying something about 'resistence is futile'!! Nobody could resist a stamp like this Heather - it's not your fault at all. Your card is just gorgeous - I seem to use that word so much everytime I visit your blog - love all your cards but this one shines.
