LOC Live Out Loud

I have double Inspiration with this card - I have been inspired by the Inspiration Challenge on SCS with this and also with the Featured Stamper, the amazing NancyRuth!! How could I resist this adorable elephant from the Layers of Color Set Polka Dot Parade!?

I was inspired by this elephant over at this weeks Inspirational site The Pajama Squid and this card of NancyRuth's. We love elephants in our house, so I couldn't go past this one! I lightly coloured the image with chalks and then attached nail bling to each of his spots - they fitted perfectly!

The DP is sponged with Distressing Ink and I have used the Layers of Color set Dotted Delights for the flourishes at the top and the bottom of the DP, these too have been stamped with Distressing Ink.

A center panel of DP has been mounted on black CS and added across the centre of the card. The image has been attached to this with ribbon attached to the lower edge. The sentiment has been typed on the computer and layered into black CS, this has been attached with dimensionals. I have threaded silver thread through the buttons and attached these on the patterned DP above the sentiment!

This card has been easy to make, you have to have some like that sometimes! LOL! I really like the colours and the feel of it - what about you!? I love the saying 'We are here to 'LIVE OUT LOUD!' How true is that - makes me wonder what my life is saying! - hmmm - 'food for thought!'
