CYCI#106 A Sketch Challenge by Elizabeth

Wow... I can't believe how quickly my week off of school went! Grades are in and I got the A I was expecting! Woohoo.... 4.0 for my first term! Phycology starts on Monday and I am so excited to see what that class has in store for me!  Any who... Today's sketch is from Elizabeth, she did an exceptional job on it too!

I went straight to my paper stack stash to see what I could work with on this card!
The Studio Calico's Wanderlust collection was perfect!

I love blues and greens together, I made a simple but fun birthday card for a kiddo!
I added the freebie stamp set I got from Simon Says Stamp - Birthday Celebrate which has the super cute Elephant on it, the birthday sentiment and lots of others to keep it useful all year long. 
Next I took out my Simon Stitched Rectangle dies, and some acetate for the shaker portion of my card.  I colored in the Elephant with Zig Clean Color watercolors.  Some black thread and one sprinkle for the hat! I'm using 120# white cardstock for the base, a bit of Doodlebug dolphin and watercolor paper too! The last thing I added was Little Things from Lucy's Cards in Atmosphere and Snowdrift which I mixed together, along with a bit of Simon's seed beads!

I hope you'll like my card and that you will join us at CYCI for another week of fun!!!

Until next time!
