Hello!  Today’s card is made using one of the stamp sets that we received at convention.  I wasn’t real thrilled with this set when I first saw it but that darn elephant is growing on me!  Since I had this stamp set I wanted to use it on a card and this is what I came up with.  I also wanted to try to use that interesting color….Summer Starfruit.  Like the elephant, it’s slowly growing on me!

The layout for this card is what I would call my “Go To Layout” or my default layout.  But it’s a good one and very versatile!  😀  I colored the elephant’s hat with the markers but I didn’t want the elephant to be too dark so I used a blender pen and the Basic Gray ink to color him in.  Isn’t the Chevron Folder fun?  This is one of my first times using it and I can see it has a lot of potential.

You may have noticed that I used paper piercing on both the large and the small pieces of Whisper White card stock.  I have this thing about too much excess white space that I need to get over!  I don’t think it detracts too much from the card, do you?

Have a great day!  Take care and Happy Stamping!
