Party Elephant

Yay! It's the weekend.
I'm struggling to find time to get into my craft room at the moment.
But, with 5 minutes here, and 10 minutes there, I finally finished a card...
here's another cute, little elephant.
 

 I started off by stamping the 'party' sentiment and embossing it.
Then I added my die-cut, elephant and party balloon.

I love seeing how you artists out there, colour these little, elephants
 and I was a little scared about how I would shade mine - colouring NOT being my strong suit.
But, I'm starting to get to grips with my own style elephant - 
a little shading and dotting with various grey Copics, a hint of blush pink,
and some white dots from a gel pen (tricky for the camera to pick up).
 With a quick glance, you would almost think I knew what I was doing!   ;-)

As for the balloon - I totally chickened out of colouring it - and paper-pieced it instead :-)
