Don't Forget

It rained up here on the mountain today.  Yea!  The no burn ban will be gone, as will the high risk for more wildfires!!! 
Speaking of wild, I've got a "wild" card for you today...a wild animal, that is.  This sketch is from the MFT Wednesday Sketch challenge  #74 and the stamps are from an oldie but goodie MFT set, "It's a Jungle Out There".


The blue dp is from Shery K designs and the purple swirls are from Echo Park Summertime.  Both are digital papers.  CS is from DCWV.  I stamped the image with Memento, then colored & outlined the elephant with my copics and used my white Uniball pen for the tusks and toenails!  Ribbon is from Papertrey and I added teal Swarovski crystals to the zigzag die (Papertrey) and sentiment (SU! punch).

I will also be entering this in the following challenges:
There's Magic in the Air - Bingo (punches,ribbon,2 or more patterned papers)
Let's Ink It Up - use favorite embellishments
Love to Create Challenge - Father's Day/Special Guy
Lexi's Creations - for the man/boy in our lives
The Poodles Parlour - card for a male
Crafty Creations - circles

Thanks for stopping by!
