Elephant card



I'm trying to figure out what's off with this card, I've already taken it apart and redone it once... I think it's the SEI paper I used-- I thought something a bit non-linear would be fun (it's got a slight angle on it), but now that I look at it, I'm not so sure. I'm posting the card and moving on! I've used the Card Positioning Sketch and the ColourQ colors. ColourQ ladies I tried using a very bold bright pink card stock I found in my stash and after multiple attempts I couldn't. So I resorted so a small dot of hot pink on the flower. I used my Stampin Up square scallop punch for the four squares, so I'll yet another card to the Mark's Finest Papers Speedy Cat challenge (to use a punch).

Materials: Stampendous elephant stamp, Stampin Up square scallop punch, Stampin Up pink card stock, grey card stock from stash, SEI patterned paper, pink marker, Stampin Up black ink

Pink? You used pink? Kudos to you. Such a sweet little elephant too, and great color blocking. I like the pop of bright pink as the only bright pink too.
