LOC All Creatures Great & Small

How could I go past this gorgeous happy elephant when creating a card for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge for this week, which is all about rejoicing!!   I love this Layers of Color elephant, you can find him here along with some other gorgeous images in the Polka Dot Parade set.  He has been coloured with chalks and had silver glitter pen added to the spots.

The edges of the image have been sponged around with distressing ink and layered onto black CS.  I added flourishes from the Layers of Color Old World Flourishes set to two corners.  The gorgeous Stampin' Up DP has been embossed and also inked with Distressing Ink, layered into black textured DP. 

These gorgeous flowers are the perfect shade of red for this card.  I have layered the centre one and added a button from my stash.  The red ones have those beautiful sparkling centres that came in a very generous RAK from Sabrina (aka okimom2girlz) The sentiment is from a Hostess set from Stampin' Up, 'So Many Sayings' and is cut out with the Slot Window Punch and layered onto the same textured black CS.  Nail Bling is the final touch!

Being a Christmas Card it also qualifies for the Creative Inspiration Challenge and the Winter Wonderland Challenge - don't you just love it when you can combine challenges!!  I also love using non traditional images, the Word of God tells us that ALL CREATION will praise Him - what better time than when we celebrate the birth of our King!!

Thank you for looking and for your wonderful comments, you bless me - you know I love seeing that you have been!!  Don't forget to check out Layers of Color to see their gorgeous stamps!  God bless you!
