A trip to the circus

When I sat down with the Animal Stories stamp set this time and looked at the elephant it reminded me of a Circus.  So I decided to try and give the card a circus type feel.  This card uses 3 of the new in colors.  I am still trying to get used to them. 

circuselephantThe elephant is embossed on the Melon Mambo cardstock and cut out.  The elephant is cut out and popped up on dimensionals, the front leg has a dimensional folded in half under it so that it pops out even more to give it a little bit of movement in the card.   I found this sketch in my inspiration book, I wrote down that it was inspired by cards from Renee and Mary.

The background looks so nice with the elephant and the extra special additions just makes it look so put together!
