I've entered this into Sheepski Designs Facebook Challenge Frame it I had no idea that was the theme when I made this card a while ago. .


  1. What a cute card! Beautifully coloured sweet little elephant. Great card design too.
    Shame about Brenda's 'shop'. I haven't needed to order for a while as even I can admit I've got too much ribbon and lace but it's very sad she's gone. Debra x

  2. What a really sweet image Carole and it looks really good keeping the colours fairly neutral against the bold background.
