Bloggers Challenge - Wild 4 You

Happy Bloggers Challenge Friday!  This week I gave the Bloggers Challenge players a Color Challenge of Brown, Green and Blue.  When I sat down to create I was a bit stumped as what to create, don't you hate when that happens.  To jump start my creativity, I turned to SCS Sketch 298, it has lots of  layers, next I pulled out my Multi Step 'Lil Elephant from Kitchen Sink Stamps, as I thought it would go well with the colors, then went in search of the perfect pattern paper.

Here's what I came up with:
The pattern paper is from the Basic Grey Wisteria Line, the Green panel is embossed with a Texture Fades Folder using Core'dinations card stock and sanded.  Doesn't this image make a cute anniversary card? 

Details:
Stamps - Kitchen Sink Stamps
Ink - Memento London Fog, Black Tuxedo, Blue Sky, SU Basic Grey
Card Stock - Chocolate, White, Celery, Core'dinations
Other - Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch, Double Circle Punch, Texture Fades Folder, Sanding Block, Big Shot, Spellbinders Oval Die, Basic Grey Wisteria

Color Recipe:
#2 London Fog, #3 Basic Grey, #4 Black Tuxedo, #1 Blue Sky stamp off and Repeat

Great card. Yes, I do hate it when I get stumped (good to know it's not just me) but I think you pulled it off. The papers are fabulous and the Elephant looks so real. Fun sentiment too.
