Growing up my mother had us in what she calls the fantasy world. We saw as many of the Disney movies as possible and she tried to shield us from all of the foolishness in the world. Thanks MomJ Today I still prefer to retreat to that simple world of Disney and that is where my inspiration for this week’s card comes from. We both love Dumbo and I’m almost certain we both cry when the mother is rocking Dumbo in her trunk through the bars of her cage.**sniff sniff** So when I saw that WPlus9 was starting a sketch challenge where you had to use one of their products I pulled out this little elephant. Since his ears are pretty proportioned to his body I had to do the next best thing of hooking two balloons to him to get him in the air and he’s flying now. Dumbo would be proud. I am entering this card in the WPlus9 sketchchallenge and also this week’s color throwdown.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
