Little grey elephant!

Hello again!
I've just had, and thoroughly enjoyed, my Saturday night Chinese takeaway and wanted to post this card before I spend the rest of the evening with hubby!
I have made this 'Thank You' card using the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches #97 and the colours from CAS Colours and Sketches #36. When I looked at these three colours on the palette, I thought "Mmm, I can't really see these going together well" but after a bit of embossing and putting them all together, I'm more than happy with the result! 
I embossed the cute little elephant from a past Sale-a-Bration set called Patterned Occasions onto SU! Basic Grey Cardstock using SU! white embossing powder and did the same with his little ear, embossing onto SU! Melon Mambo CS.  I stamped the tiny sentiment and the flower using my SU! inkpads (Melon Mambo and Old Olive) and a blender pen (easy peasy!).  The embossing at the top of the two tags was done using the circle stamp from SU! My Friend.
Thanks again for stopping by today!  Back again soon x
