Love is Blind Elephant and Dog Friendship Card

I wasn't sure where I was going with this card until I actually started doing it, and it began to come together pretty much on it's own. I am a very spontaneous creator. I almost never have a plan before beginnging to work on something. I may have an idea in mind of what I want my card to portray, but when it comes right down to it, it has to sort of melt into place as I go along. Anyway, this card is actually sweet. Look at the smitten look that dog has while gazing up at the elephant. This is about a love against all odds. Coming together despite differences, despite what is expected and loving unconditionally. It seems sometimes that animals are much more able to do this than humans are. Wouldn't it be nice if we could all look beyond each others differences and accept people for who they are and love them anyway? You never know what you might be missing by not giving someone a chance. Life is too short. Enjoy what you have, count your blessings, learn from your mistakes and be kind to others. How's that for a story behind a card?
Have a great day!

I found the story about Tara and Bella from Trudy .. or was it Priscilla, but it's a sweet video on YouTube. Your card really brings life especially with the foliage and moss touch! Wonderful :) -Jeni
