Saturday Surprise Contest

Angie, over at PW decided to throw us a surprise contest today. Here are the "rules"
Make a A2 sized card using the following:
Half of a circle
Two rectangles
Two embellishments of your choice (can be two brads, eyelets, buttons etc.)
One colored image (can be current or retired)
One bow (but no straight length of ribbon!)

Well....I think I made a boo boo AFTER I uploaded my card and started typing this. Oh well, it is what it is. Anyway I got "stuck" on the no straight length of ribbon. So I decided to use curling ribbon!! he he he No straight stuff there! BUT I didn't make a bow...just a knot. The 2 embellies are 2 giant sized eyelets that I ran the curling ribbon thru. It took me 10 tries to snap a pic of this thing...glare everywhere. I tried. So the quality isn't there, but it's late and i'm tired.

The half circle is actually a "full circle" stamp taken from Circle Sampler
The elephant is from On Safari
Bazzill CS
Patterned Paper from Uptown Girl (You can't tell from the photo, but it is black paper with pink in it.)
There are also 2 giant sized eyelets that I ran the curling ribbon thru.
I colored in the elephant with h20 pencils and a dove blender and topped off with some stickles.
