Elephants out to dry!

Here’s a quick little tutorial for a card I made for a friend’s sons Baptism last week. It was my first Instagram tutorial. I love this colour combination. Orange and navy blue were used on Luke’s Baptism invitation – as it turned out it was carried right through, coordinating chocolate favours given at church, the balloons, centre pieces and […]
