Make The Day Special March challenge

If I'm honest, colour challenges are not usually my thing. I much prefer a sketch or a theme. But this month's Make The Day Special blog challenge has some really fab colour options, and actually it was a great excuse to have a dig through my paper scraps bag! I used the darker colour scheme of the three, and my lovely Wplus9 bubble talk elephant stamps and dies, and my always-favourite Lawn Fawn Finlay's ABCs.


He's coloured with Promarkers, but I was at the Hobbycrafts show at the NEC on Friday and picked up loads of new distress inks for the next elephant!

I was hoping to have a chance to try the other colour ways too before the challenge ended but time has run away with me. Mostly that I was in Dubai last weekend visiting my sister, can't really complain about that! 


  1. Awww he's adorable and I love how he fits into the sentiment as the letter 'o' :)
    Gorgeous card. Thank you for playing along with our challenge this month at Make the Day Special Stamp Store .

  2. I'm so glad you picked the last scheme it was my fave to (although I don't like colour challenges much either to be fair!)
    Love how you mixed the elephant in with the letters - such fun! Thanks for joining us at make the day special stamp store.
