Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Soft Scarf Reminder

CC Jan 15 photo CCJan15pic.jpg

We are half way though the Soft Scarf Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge and Hero Arts is our sponsor.

I needed another baby card for a friend so I went with a blue and brown colour combination as well as some stripes.  A bit of a stretch with the shades of brown I used and my concept of stripes versus colour blocks on the scarf, but if you close your eyes and pretend it will all work out wink, wink :) 

I used an I Heart Sketches sketch and added the sentiment panel along the bottom to ground the elephant.  Outlined the eye and ear on the elephant in black so they would stand out a bit more and added a touch of twine for a little something, something.

Hope you are having a great day, and we would love to have you play along if you haven't already done so!
