Elephant Scene

Yep this is the card I entered for the Scene portion of the
Stampers Quest search for the trail Master.

You can still vote today yet if you go here all the details will be there!


Remember yesterday when I posted the Doe a Deer I explained about making the card, not liking it, asking for critiquing and redoing well this was the second card I had done that day.

Here is the before


was pretty plain - I was so into making the "scene" I forgot about the rest of the card!

Here is after.


Way more better! LOL - thank you to my friend for opening my eyes and seeing sometimes you need to keep adding to get it to look complete! Yep that is the story I am sticking with! In other words take off my blinders when I am working! A HUGE THANK YOU TO YOU for your help! (you know who you are! and I appreciate the honesty and tips you offered!)
