An Elephant Never Forgets

Hi peeps! I made this card last night for this week's Blogger's Challenge. I was looking through my sets and couldn't believe I hadn't inked up this freaky cute elephant yet! So I did. Because it fit the challenge to make a card using Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze and Whisper White/Very Vanilla.
The elephant image is from the Stampin' Up! set Teacher's Pet. I stamped him on to watercolor paper, water colored him in and then made this frame with the Top Note Big Shot die and the Curvy Label punch. Super easy and a lot of fun! :)
So what do ya think?

P.S!!! Make sure that you stop back in tomorrow! I have a VERY VERY VERY exciting surprise to share with you as well as some fantastical Blog Candy to celebrate!! :)

This is AWESOME!!! What a fabulous idea. I like the same shape, different size thing.. Like from scrapbooking, it's great to repeat elements. And of course repeating things makes us remember! Terrific job!
