Less is More 65...A Sketch

Oh my...how life can get chaotic...I am down to the wire with one of my favorite challenges, Less is More !  This week the challenge is a sketch...here's the two sketches we are to choose from
                                           
Oh how I tried and tried to do something so different and unique...I especially tried to do an out-of-the-box...Chrissie and Mandi's inspirations were so lovely, but try as I might...nothing worked.  I was sifting through some stamps trying to find that "special something" when this little elephant by Verve fell out of the box...all by himself.  I decided to give him some love and came to find out, he was the perfect size for the square of this card...
I stamped the elephant twice on dotted Papertrey Ink paper and once on light gray(for the ears) and cut out the legs, arms, ears and head.  The head, I cut the trunk...here's a side view... 
The oval is from A Muse and I stamped it with versamark and cut out.  Placed the elepant a little off center...thought it looked cool that way.  The sentiment...I don't recall where it came from.  I used the Papertrey Ink Linen/Canvas Impression plate for added texture.  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

Perfect pink and gray combo! And I love how you've turned up the hands and feet a bit! Such a small detail but it really adds a lot!
