Who doesn't love elephants, they are so cute, and both my cards today (yep, two cards again to celebrate National Craft Month) feature these magnificent creatures.
The image and backing paper are both from the Joanne Sheen CD Rom Jayne Netley Mayhew Collection Part One, and it's such a beautiful sketch that it made a lovely card without embellishing it too much. All I have done is mounted the topper on black card and added an elephant button and a sentiment.
My second card today uses a peel-off for the main focal point. I have centered this on torn strips of paper to give a sunset effect and mounted this on gold mirri. I have used two animal print patterns from my stash and hidden the join with an animal print ribbon. I have finished the card off with gold peels-offs making the sentiment "It's Your Birthday Go Wild'.
Creative Blessings. x
