Poise, style, grace, this girl's got it all

Here is my card for this weeks High Hopes Challenge #17. This week was a sketch challenge. I did make this card several days ago but dear Hubby took the camera away with him and I had to wait for his return, before I could get the photo taken.
I just love this stamp in Australia it is available from Heavenscent Crafts in Melbourne.
I have coloured my image using 2 different mediums this time. I like to colour as most of you know and I have lots of different mediums to choose from. This time I combined my Prismacolor pencils for the elephant and watercolour crayons for the background. I am very pleased with the end result. I combined several different watercolour crayon colours to get the final colour needed to match the designer paper (bittersweet by Basic Grey)
This was such a fun card to make. I hope you all enjoy it.

Until next time
Inking of you all
