   I could not resist this adorable elephant.
   I matted textured paper from my stash onto black card and wrapped black ribbon round it before matting it onto white card. The image is from Dragons Lair Designs and after colouring it using Promarkers I cut it out using a pearl circle die from Tattered Lace.  I then added three black card candi, a black bow and a sentiment cut from black card using Tattered Lace dies to finish the card.
