Clean And Simple Challenge #19

This is my card for Monday's Clean and Simple Challenge at Splitcoaststampers:

I found these adorable sets to fit the bill PATCHPAL ELEPHANT,PATCHPAL MESSAGES from Clear Dollar Stamps LLC: I am just loving your elephant Shawne.

I find myself holding my breath (so to speak) during the card making process. Just hoping it turns out. Very rarely does the end result look anything like what the original idea was in my head. LOL I love how little mistakes or things effect the final result. For example, the angle of the center panel on this card came about because just before I adhered it, it was laying at an angle on my card and I liked that. Hee Hee.

And when I first stamped my elephants and was looking at it, I thought what if I colored in the dots? Of course what if this turned out to be a disaster? Would I have to start over? Well, I plunged forward and ended up liking it, however when I first colored in a couple dots I did it completely and as I went along I found I liked a little white left. Wish I knew that from the beginning.

And the angled matting was not planned either. It turned out my white with the images on it was crooked. Oh well I went with it. I figured it I twisted it more it would look like I did it on purpose. With adhering the whole square at an angle on the base it makes it looked planned. Yeah, right. Funny isn't it? How it finally all turns out?! Now you know. Hee hee.

Thank you for visiting.
