I have a birthday card to share and a first for me a peek-a-boo card using an up to now unused stamp set from LC Designs.As I am rubbish at colouring animals I stamped then paper pieced(which TBH may have been the wrong paper!!!),stitched square dies from The Works stamped sentiment a craft mag freebie and done.The outer frame is in 3-D foam pads.

So cute and i love the layout. I love paper piecing and it looks great in this paper. But the beauty of elephants is that you can go with any pattern and color. I hope to see more of these elephants.

No Carol, the right paper, it looks great! I like the monochrome - it looks almost metallic. So glad you shared it with us at 2CraftyCritterCrazies, come again soon. CarolG
