Never Forget

     Couldn't you just squeeze him to pieces!    I think this little elephant from Mo's Digital Pencil is so sweet and since our challenge at The Kraft Journal this week is "remembering you" who better to put on my card but the animal who never forgets.  ;-)
     I actually broke into a new paper pad for this one--some more yummy My Mind's Eye with all those soft pastel colors.  I think this would be a great baby card.
     I started with a base of Light Kraft Cover Weight cardstock and then matted with a layer of Buff Ivory Cover Weight cardstock.  Next comes that gorgeous DP.  I matted the image with more of the Buff Ivory and mounted it on top of some cheesecloth.  The fishtail banners and sentiment are both cut from Chipboard and covered with more of the Light Kraft.  I used a white gel pen to add some stitching.  That yummy pink bow is 7 Gypsies Victoria seam binding.  I just love the soft colors on this card.
     Hope you'll join us for this weeks challenge.  Babette just added some really cool products to the Kraft Outlet store so if you're the lucky monthly winner, you just might want to buy some of them with your gift voucher.  You can't win if you don't play and each time you do play you get another chance at winning.
