Stampin' Chic sketch challenge

This is my take on this week's sketch challenge over on the Stampin' Chic blog.
I wanted to use my elephant stamp (which I had previously stamped onto white vellum, using stazon). I thought the pattern on the elephant would go well with these papers, from the Clare Curd Signature Range. Although now I look at it on here I'm thinking maybe you can have too much of a good thing and I should have left the white layer unpatterned!!!
I coloured the image with promarkers, cut it out, stuck it on silver card and then cut it out again.
The shapes are all cut with my nestabilities. The sentiment stamp I've used again is the freebie from one of the recent DoCrafts magazines. The ribbon is from the new Papermania couture ribbon collection and I've also used Papermania scalloped card blanks (yes, I do use quite a lot of their stuff!!!).
Thanks for looking!!
