I have been playing along over at The Outlawz Challenges Progressive/freebie challenge since is started again in January.
Every month you get a free digi stamp, and you have to make a card and enter it before the end of the month, then you get the next months. Its a great little challenge and there are prizes to be won too.
So, this month the challenge is sponsored by Gerda Steiner Digi Stamps and the stamp we were all given is a Cute Elephant - I know, me do cute! Distressed I can do, messy I can do, I can even do girly but cute! now this was a challenge!!!
After it sitting on my desk for nearly the whole month, with me trying to make something with the now PINK Elephant (why did I colour it PINK!). I finally (after pulling out nearly every paper I had!) found a paper pack hidden in the 'don't go in there it's scary messy! drawer. I sat there for another hour or so moving papers around, until I finally come up with this make...I am sure it really shouldn't have been this dramatic, its an Elephant! But I'm sure you all have crafty days like this lol
So the Sandie Messy Desk Drama Club proudly presents......Elephant!
|After all my drama, she is cute!|
|I even added an Elephant in the centre cut from the scraps!|

Backing papers are from an old (very) DCWV paper pad called For The Boys and its matted onto Kraft card.
The circus banner at the front is also from the same pad, off one of the paper sheets. As the paper is so heavy from DCWV I was able to score it to add the 3D banner without having to back it with acetate (phew or there would have been even more drama lol)
The circle is cut using the Dienamics Pierced Circles Stax die (what a surprise hey! I did warn my regular visitors I was a little addicted to this die set and you all need one lol) and the bench is from a Joy Crafts die (from That Craft Place). The bench was cut from Kraft card and then I added a shadow with Promarkers (because they were on my desk lol)
Obviously I fussy cut the Elephant out so I could sit him on the bench...but he was going to be under a lamppost, then sitting on the banner, then up a tree because there was a die cut tree on my desk and I fell about laughing at it up the tree...see, I've lost it on a cute card! lol
Here's the close ups:
|hehe....I still managed to add my signature layered Butterfly! lol|
