CCEE Stampers are showing off our zoo animals this week. Shirley said it is time to get wild and make a card with one of our favorite zoo animals on it. As you can see, I went with the elephant. I love dots and stripes so I paper pieced the elephant with dots and the clouds with stripes. I used some twine from so he could carry these punched balloons to someone to wish them a happy birthday or whatever occasion.
