Project: A Wild Moving Along with the Times challenge

This week at Moving Along with the Times we have an "Into the Wild" theme for you - country, weather, animal or whatever this means to you.

I decided to use one of my favorite but often under-used stamps from Little Claire, a beautiful elephant stamp with a reflection pool of the image. It's a bit tricky to use but it's just so stunning.  I put it on a slightly textured mustard card stock so that it would have that grainy appearance - it's quite a big image and I love the way it looks with a bit of color coming through it.

The punch is a Martha Stewart branch punch that I used as a border. I decided to use natural card for the greeting and embellishments. I thought the gold gems would look like petals or leaves - not sure they do but they're sweet all the same!

Originally I had it all over a patterned paper but I thoguht it was too busy so I paired it back and just used white. I'm glad I did, I didn't want to ovewhelm the beauty of the image.

I can't wait to see what you do with the wild theme!
