It's Irrelephant!

We're going wild this week at Stampendous with some awesome Dreamweaver stencils and some great stamps!  Today I have a card with a little bit of Indian spice and lots of stuff that's nice!  Here's my card:

Here's what I used to create this card:

Tim Holtz® Distress Ink in Pumice Stone by Ranger®
Neenah® Classic Crest™ Solar White Cover Stock
May Arts Ribbon®
Zip Dry Paper Glue by Beacon Adhesive
Scrapbook Adhesives® 3D Foam Mounting Squares by 3L®
Self-Adhesive Pearl by Want2Scrap™

Here's what I did to create this card:

Mix some regular white paste with a squirt of gold paint and a pinch of beads for some fun texture
Paste emboss stencil with mixture directly onto trimmed patterned paper, set aside to dry
Create A2 card base with a tent fold from blue cardstock
Trim bottom layer of designer paper 
Stamp sentiment on scrap of white paper with blue ink and add distress ink
Trim a mat for sentiment and adhere sentiment to mat
Cut two strips of ribbon
Once paste has dried, adhere elephant to bottom patterned paper and wrap ribbons around as shown covering edges
Adhere these layers to card base
Add foam squares to sentiment and attach to card over ribbon

This was a fun card to create, I like the effect of the micro beads and will add those to future pasted projects for sure.  Just something different! Here's a list of my teammates that have more wild animals to share with you:
