The second card that I'm sharing is another one made with the "Patchpal Elephant" stamp. This card was made for our CDS Design Team Sketch Challenge and Laurie Wilson always designs the layouts for these, and she did a great job on this one, as it really lent itself well to the "Patchpal Elephant". I wanted to make another baby shower card geared more for a boy and had orange, green and blue on the brain for some reason. But all-in-all, I think it turned out pretty cute. Here's the deets:

Wow, I don't know where to begin, your samples are all awesome, my favorite peony is the black and white, the colors look striking on your card and the way you cut out the flower at the edge is so cool! And I just love your coloring and what you did with both of the elephants, I really like the pinking shears nestie with it, perfect for baby!
