CD Sunday Challenge - Anything Asian

Here we are again with another challenge,  the fortnights do go quickly,  this time its Jane's choice, Jane is our newest member and this is her first challenge with us,
She chose Anything Asian,   well elephants sprang to mind and what else but a card with elephants on,  well it sort of went a bit further and grew into a card the shape of an elephant.   Four drawings and three pieces of card later and here is the final card.   The backing paper came from the Joanna Sheens Royal Horticultural Society CD.   I made the ear separately and covered it with another piece of paper before placing it on the elephant,  Asian Elephants have smaller ears than the African.
 The coat over her back is two pieces of felt the top one is embroidered with tiny flowers and the sequins are sewn on then the two pieces are sewn together before glueing on the back of her.  before adding an eye and peel offs to finish off and adding a silver bow on her trunk.
I hope you will visit the CD Sunday Challenge site, and remember if you want to enter the challenge you must use something from a CD no matter how small and let us know which CD you used.  Here is a link to CD Sunday Challenge blog  we would be pleased to see you.

I hope you are having a lovely weekend
