Little Elephant Thank You Card - GDP #142

I'm playing along with Global Design Project #142, which is a sketch challenge. I know I've said it before, but I do love the GDP challenges to kick start my creativity! I had a Stampin' Up! delivery earlier in the week, and managed to find some time today to sort everything out, which turned into a much bigger job when I decided to organise all my cardstock! I've now got each colour in a separately labelled plastic sleeve, all stored in hanging files, so it will be much easier to find the colour I want from now on. The trouble was, that took me so long that I only left myself with a little bit of time to play with my new goodies - so the sketch challenge was perfect!

I've used a new stamp set, Little Elephant, and the matching Elephant Builder punch. I don't normally go for the cute stamp sets, so I really surprised myself by liking this one, but I loved it enough for it to be part of my first order from the new catalogue! I've paired it with the new colour papers, which I think will be really useful - this one is Smoky Slate from the Neutrals collection. I've also used two new colours, Highland Heather and Balmy Blue. I can see myself using Highland Heather a lot, I love a good purple!

I've also used Smoky Slate and Memento Black ink, Pick a Pattern washi tape, Stiched Shapes and Layering Circles Thinlets dies, Classic Label punch and Whisper White card. 

I hope you like today's project! If you're thinking of ordering in June, don't forget to use the online code below. I've also still got some annual catalogues, so let me know if you're in the UK and you'd like one.

Thanks for visiting!
