An Elephant Never Forgets

      Nothing better than using an elephant on a belated birthday card !  lol  This fun image from QKR Stampede, called "Elephant and Butterfly," seemed perfect for those occasional birthdays which really aren't forgotten but somehow I forget to put the card in the mail on time.  This is my DT card for the July mid-month challenge at QKR Stampede.  The challenge will run until the end of the month and a new one will begin on August 1st.  I do hope we see you playing along.

     I used ProMarkers and gel pens to color the image, then cut it with a Dare 2B Artzy stitched circle die.   The sentiment was printed and cut with an Avery Elle die.  The double loop bow was tied using baker's twine.  I used my 'Linen' embossing folder on the blue strip of CS and the dp bits (also scraps) are from a very old stack by DCWV.

I chose the colors from the My Favorite Things challenge,
including the tiny bits of  'Coral' in the butterfly wings.


     Now, let's see what you can do for our "Anything Goes" theme this fortnight.  We love b eing inspired by you.  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie

Anyone would forgive you for forgetting a birthday, when receiving this card Connie. It's a real Delight.

Fantastic coloring on this cute image. I agree with Faith. You would be forgiven instantly about forgetting a birthday. In fact, this card would be a nice after-birthday present.
I hope you are doing well.

PS - The sequel to BSQ is available now.
