Mojo Elephant

This card is for two challenges, Mojo Monday - 'the sketch' and The Pink Elephant -'black, red, yellow and white':



I know I've used this image from CC Designs recently but she's cute and needed another outing. I really need to work on my yellow shading, it looks OK and then you take a photo and it looks like I did it after too many glasses of wine! I changed the centre shape on the sketch as feel I've done a lot of straight edges of late. The papers are Doodlebug and I couldn't resist a flower and a glitter gem - coloured with Copics to match the image.

Zac's at his Grandparents today as me and Blake have been for our 8 weeks check ups, Blake had to have jabs - not sure he will trust me to take him out again!

Will have to post very early or very late tomorrow as it's my Husband's Gran's funeral. I'm not going to the funeral as we can't get anyone to watch the boys, but I'll be going to the wake afterwards. And then it will get very emotional for me as we're taking her flowers up to my baby son's grave. She's having white avalanche roses, the flowers Flynn had for his funeral. I think I'll take him a little teddy bear too, his brothers have loads and won't mind sharing.

  5. Hi Donna, what a stunning card, love the image and your coloring is beautiful, no need to think the yellow is not good, it is fabulous. Really feel for you over your husband's gran's funeral and wake, and visiting your little one's grave will be the saddest of days for you. My love and heart goes out to you, as have lost a wee girl too 21 yrs ago and still find it hard to bear. All the best, take care
