Hang in there

Well have you heard yet? Gina is having a HUGE sale, click here for all the details and for a chance to win some blog candy.

I used Whatever Floats your Boat for my card. I have loved this set and bought it when it first came out. The first thing I think of when I see the elephant is the circus, so I went with the theme and made an attempt at a circus tent. I created the "tent" by drawing the stripes on some barely banana card stock and then coloring the red stripes. I did a little shading at the point were the tent would start angling up to the top. Next I cut it out and attached it to a card base of barely banana. the "ring" is an oval of kraft that has been trimmed to have a flat edge for the bottom. For the tent top I colored a piece of barely banana with the same red copic, punched with a scallop edge punch and the popped it up. The elephant is colored with copics and then cut out. I used the umbrella from Melanie Muenchinger's set Just So Hippy. The sentiment is form Nina Brackett's newest set Bug Me Anytime. Some of the other ladies on the design team are posting cards tonight featuring sets from the lucky seven sale, be sure to check them out.
