Phindy's Place ~ All About Animals " An Elephant Never Forgets"

Aren't these phindy elephants the cutest?? They say elephants never forget, so are there  any animals more appropriate for an anniversary card? I think not.
The challenge this week at Phindy's Place is:
All About Animals
 Now you don't have to use a Phindy image to play along, but if you do, you can enter your card twice for two chances to win, so something to think about!
My image is colored with prismacolors and the paper is DCWV. You can find this elephant digi right here in the shop.
The punch is Martha Stewart and the dies are Spellbinder's Nestabilities. the bakers twine is from an online store called The Twinery.

And the close up!

OK, so don't forget (lol) to join in the challenge this week! I'll be looking out for you!
Have a great weekend everyone!
Here are some challenges I'd like to play along with:
Color Create: Pastel colors
Craft Us Crazy : Celebration
Delightful Challenges: pastels and Ribbon (does twine count?)
Pixie Dust :Inspired by movie (Dumbo)
Southern Girls: Add an animal
Ambers Crafts: Use die cuts
Crafty Creations : IN Stitches
Creative Cottage: Spring
Scrap Creations: Spring Has Sprung
