Make My Monday - Indian Summer

This week's challenge at Make My Monday is Indian Summer - and that means using bright colours.  As well as the bright colours, I tried to get an Indian feel to my card (apologies to anyone Indian reading this, for the lack of authenticity!).

The elephant stamp is by Paper Parachute (it's an old wood-mounted one) and I stamped it in brown for a henna effect. The stamps surrounding the elephant are by Crafty Individuals and the background pink panel is stamped with a paisley stamp by Blade Rubber.

I hope you will come over and join in at Make My Monday.
