Elephants on parade!

Happy Weekend everyone - 
hope you've got something fun planned for today!

Our new challenge at Sweet Stampin' is just starting, love this theme:


so many possibilities! 

I decided to choose one of the first films I remember seeing at the cinema 


Dumbo HQ

It still makes me sniff if I watch it now!!

Here's my card, using a Little Claire stamp I've had for ages - Are we there yet? , love the way they are holding tails.

Lots of grey promarker shades on these 3!
