From Me To you

Hi after seeing a card shaped like this following a trip to Grimsby Crafts I just had to have a go myself. I decided one of the wonderful Bella images would fit nicely.
I coloured the image with copics. I am pleased with the shading on the elephant. I think my classes with Kate at Grimsby Crafts are paying off (.downrightcrafty ). This is a link to her blog - thanks Kate x

I used a new spellbinders die to showcase Bella. The backing papers are from my stash. I added some flowers from the Hobby House, a die cut flourish and some pearls. I finished it off with a sentiment and bow xx. This last picture shows how I folded a piece of A4 card to make the card base.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges-
