Well rounded thank you

Hi everybody,

Two cards in two days! That's what you get when there's rainy weather and the kids have their summer break :). My card today is completely different from my card yesterday. Where yesterday my card was very bold in colors today my card is more romantic.
The image I used is called Well Rounded Elephant by Crissy Armstrong for Whimsy Stamps. This stamp was also released in the period that I wasn't crafting but had to order it because I think it's so super cute! The flowers and leaves are all Wild Orchid Crafts and I adore these colors (links below). The fabulous thank you chipboard shape I bought from Sister Art Creation, two sisters, one in Germany and the other in Indonesia who sell the most fabulous quality of chipboard. They don't have a store yet but sell through Ebay. You'll find their Facebook page HERE. But be warned, they have a fabulous selection.
As always the image was colored with Copic Markers and 3D paper pieced. I'm still in doubt if I should have paper pieced the head like I did but I wanted to give him blushing cheeks that stood out. I think I'll try this image with a "flatter" face as well.
Have to also show you the back of my card as I love it :).
And the little pieces that together form the image.

Hope you like! Don't worry, no card for the next couple of days but hope you like this one :).
