Robyn's Fetish Challenge #90

Happy Sunday and Happy Martin Luther King's Birthday day!
(also my Late Father's Bday--he would have been turning 91, he died march 10, 2005...RIP Daddy!)

This week's theme is ANIMALS

Our sponsor is DI'S DIGI DOWNLOADS

our images are from Robyn's Fetish though, I choose this adorable Elephant called "An Elephant never forgets"  I chose this image for 2 it absolutely IS A DOR A BLE, but also it is a reigning joke in my family...That "I have the memory of an Elephant" and since I was also a bit bottom heavy (even when I was a size 5...25 years ago, LOL)  My dad would joke that I also had "The hips to match" (all of the women in his side of the family were bottom heavy and that is where it came from.  So I even say it about myself now...THUS my sentiment! LOL

I made my card be a bit on the CAS side, as I really didn't know how to dress up the elephant, and to be honest, I didn't want to take away from him, either.

 Card base is a pre-made card base from DCWV, the printed paper is also DCWV (older), the organza and twine ribbon is older and from my stash, and the rosette was made with "Infinity Dots" regular border punch by EK SUCCESS. I then added a black button to it. I used Fruit punch Stickles by RANGER to highlight the rosette and here and there on the card. The elephant is colored with STAMPIN' UP markers.

I hope you like my card :) Thanks for visiting!
