Friday Sketchers Challenge

This is my attempt at this weeks Friday Sketchers Challenge . I'm not very happy with it if I'm honest but I thought I would upload it as it took me ages!

The challenge was to make a card/project using the following sketch. Pop over and have a look at the design teams work, they are FAB.

I have used a Hero Arts elephant stamp with a Doodlebug backing paper, mounted on pink Bazzill and silver mirri card. The gems were all stuck on by hand and I would have liked them a little higher but I'm NOT starting again! The elephant is raised using silicone glue, which I have only just discovered and LOVE it! I always thought that it would be too messy but it isn't at all and it really allows you to shape what your are attaching. I'm not really happy with the greeting , it needs a little something, I get the feeling I may be adding a touch of glitter..... I never learnt that whole less is more thing!
