Diamond Nellie

Every Wednesday I like to do a color challenge on create-a-card yahoo group The colors are obvious - green and gray. It really is a simple card except for cutting the diamonds is a bit tricky. The elephant is colored with watercolor pencils and blended with a dove marker. I made it for a boy who is turning 15 at church. Guy cards are really difficult even when they are simple. I guess I just think like a girl. Umm! I wonder why.

This is such a great guy card, Peggie! You did a great job coloring the elephant in and the diamonds are a great touch.
