Wild Ride

The Color Challenge this week on StampTV is to use Red and Blue without making it patriotic. For this card I used the elephant from "Whatever Floats Your Boat" available from GinaK Designs. He was colored with colored pencils and OMS. The stripe on the ball and the pad on his back were paper pieced with a piece of the new Stars and Strips digi paper from StampTV. The same paper was used for the larger frame. A piece of the blue stripped digi paper was used on the bottom portion. These papers are a free download listed under "Freebies" on the StampTV Home page. There are 10 different designs. The Real Red cardstock was embossed with the Cuttlebug Hounds tooth folder. A Martha Stewart border punch was used for the Red border. Petite Oval Nestabilities was used for both the frames. The white frame under the elephant was sponged with Barely Banana before removing it from the die. A little star button was added to finish it off.

He is so cute, and really doesn't look wild at all. Wonderful use of the colors without being patriotic. I love how you also used the paper piecing. With a different saying on the front of this card you could use it very easily for a childs birthday card.
