Raspberry Suite Colour Challenge

YAY, there's another Dawn challenge to sink my teeth into! I know I've said this heaps but what is the deal with all these bold and bright colours!!?? I was in the deep end once again trying to come up with a fabulous design to impress and be selected for the top picks!! (after all we love getting noticed-YES??)
So with the grey, my mind went straight to Elephants....
Elephants what could I do with those??
Last year I made a wonderfully cute original art work for my sisters gallery opening (Momento, click here to see her amazing work!)
It had the theme of those cute elephants balancing on a piece of string. That's it, I'll do that! But how on earth will I incorporate the Bright Pink, Green and Red??? Ummmmmmmm
Well in the end it all came together, I added some colour by mounting the ears and then layered the whole card to bring the colours all together!! (of course there needed to be ribbon & a button!!)
YAY! What a fun card! I just need to work out who I'm going to give it to....
Hope your Friday is wonderful, we have a cold start here currently it's only 7! But the sun is shinning so that's OK!!
Smiles and hugs

How fun is that little hand-written sentiment ... and the distressed edges are perfect too.
