Friday's elephant is... embellished?

Hello again,

Let's have a look at Friday's elephant, shall we?:

And a close-up of the added embellishements:

So this card was inspired by that pretty stripey patterned paper by K&Co. I just love it, but find stripey paper a little difficult to use. But this is what came out of it!

I stamped the elephant and those peanuts on kraft cardstock, inked with Vintage photo, and then fussy-cut. I tied a bow in some embroidery floss, and glued it down with some Glossy Accents glue. I then stamped the sentiment using the Sophie's Sentiments set by Lawn Fawn, in Brown Sugar Jenni Bowlin ink, and wrapped it in embroidery floss before adhering it with 3D foam adhesive.
Then I inked the whole panel in more Vintage photo, and adhered it down to a white card base, also inked in VP.

So that's it for Friday. Hope you're looking forward to the final instalment tomorrow :)

Until then, take care and keep smiling!
