Paper Pieced Elephants

    For this card I was inspired by the sketch over at Feeling Sketchy and wanted to go with a clean look.
    I used a digi from A Day for Daisies and chose to paper piece the elephants with a DP with script.
    The DPs in blue color tones are from My Mind's Eye. I mounted both the silver background panel and the one with the elephants on foam pads. I machine stitched around the edges, added 2 Spellbinder die cuts, 2 bling and a rub on with a "thank you" sentiment.

    This card is for these challenges:
    1) Feeling Sketchy - Sketch
    2) A Day for Daisies - #67 Your Favorite Technique (paper piecing and stitching)
    3) Shopping Our Stash - #97 Text Or Letters
    4) Desert Island Crafters - Itinerary (1+3+4)
    5) Forever Friends - Paper Piecing
    6) Addicted to Stamps and More - #41 Anything Goes
    7) The Pink Elephant Monday Card Challenge - Paper Piecing
    8) Cutie Pie Challenge - Clean & Simple
    9) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
