Make My Monday # 50 - travel

Good Morning to you all, i hope you all had a good weekend.

So its time for the next challenge at Make My Monday

The theme this fortnight is

Vacations & Travel  (or Holidays to you & I)

After 2 weeks without crafting it felt good to find my mojo and be home long enough to create this card.  I don't have much in my stash aimed at holidays and travelling but found this lovely elephant in my Indian dreams digi kit, so for my holiday we have hopped over to beautiful India. 

I have actually ridden an elephant, many many years ago here in Cornwall, its an exciting way to ride from a to b, a bit slower than horse😄 

A5 white linen cardblank.  I printed off the elephant 4 times and cut it out and decoupaged.  Printed off a matching backing paper and matted onto turquoise card to pick up the blue in the elephant.  Turquoise dotty ribbon, double bow, elephant charm and sentiment to finish.  

Close up, i also added glitter glue and glossy accents to highlight the beautiful elephant. 

Items used:
Daisytrail 'Indian Dreams' digi kit
Serif Craftartist 2
Double stitched rectangles
LOTV sentiment stamp

So if you fancy joining in and see what the rest of the DT came up with, please do pop over.

Thank you for popping by and all your comments last week.  Wishing you all a wonderful week. Emma
