Whimsical Elephant

Hi! It's been raining a lot lately here in Florida, and I'm really missing the sunshine, so I think that might be why I chose to create this bright, cheery, whimsical elephant card! Notice, I added raindrops to it though. Can't get away from it! I created it using all Gecko Galz papers and digi image. Here's what I used:

Gecko Galz Pink Lemonaid, Lemon Squeezy, and Star Burst papers; Gecko Galz Animal Crackers elephant digi image; lime cardstock; decorative trimmer blade; markers (Crayola); black ink (Martha Stewart); black/white baker's twine (We R Memory Keepers); water drop stickers (Fiskars); round glitter stickers (Stick-O); drink umbrella toothpick; foam dots (EK Success); cloud clip art (Microsoft)
* Create a 6 x 6 card from lime cardstock. Trim Pink Lemonaid paper with decorative trimmer blade and ink the edges with black ink; adhere to card. Color elephant with markers and cut out; attach to card with foam dots. Cut out 3 lemons from the Lemon Squeezy paper to create balloons, attach twine to the back, and adhere to card with glue and foam dots. Adhere glitter stickers to the center of the lemon balloons. Thread twine behind the elephant's trunk. Print (or stamp) cloud image over Star Burst paper and cut out around cloud shape; adhere to card around other images. Fold a drink umbrella in half and slide toothpick behind the elephant to hold in place. Attach raindrop stickers to the background and splash stickers to the umbrella and elephant.

Miles of Smiles,
