Patchwork Elephant Congratulations


Today's card was inspired by the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger photo.  I added a border punch to tie together the different pieces of patterned paper for this weeks CAS-ual Friday "getting edgy" challenge.  I've paper pierced my elephant with the different papers on the card for the "Paper Pierced" challenge on 365 cards.  And since I've added a Pebbles Inc congrats rub on that I won from Paper Crafts Connection, I'll add this to the Gallery Idol challenge, not that I think I have any chance with all those fabulous entries, but oh well.  My elephant has a bit of a smudge on his head (from I think some glue left on my desk), but I think it gives him that well loved feel that is so fun in soft toys.


Materials: Stampendous elephant, Pebbles Inc rub on sentiment, PTI Limitless Layers die, EK Success 1 3/4th inch circle punch, Tim Holtz Ornamental die, Tim Holtz Antique Linen Distress ink, Versafine black ink, Fiskars chevron stripe punch, patterned paper from my stash
