Now...on with the show!

I immediately fell in LOVE with the Safari Love (Lisa has TWO Cutting Files) and knew that I just had to use one...I've always had a thing for elephants so my choice was an easy one!

Half the fun in Die-Cuts is picking out all the contrasting paper! I knew I wanted my elephant to have some sparkle and texture so I pulled out CTMH's Paper Fundamentals (it has a glossy resist pattern on one side) and some Glitter Paper that would complement the HeartStrings Kit.
This little elephant is layered using my favorite Thin 3D-Foam Tape for that extra dimension...
And here's the of the other images that comes with Safari Love Cutting Files...I just separated the WILD and used it on the front instead of having the sentiment all together.
