Water For Elephant cards

Hello Everyone,

I hope ya'l had a relaxing weekend.We had some awesome weather this weekend & did a little gardening. I've been learning to use my gypsey and practiceing what I learn. Thankfully there are a lot of good videos out there to give you a hand.
Me & my sisters are Wild about Robert Pattenson and are planning on watching Water for Elephants when it comes out. What better way than send out invites & make it a Rob night.

I used Summer vacation cartridge for the Circus Tent,Animanl Kingdom for the Elephant,Country Life for the tub of water. I messed ups so much trying to cut out the tent that I gave up and painted the tent with acrylique paint & used Scribbles 3D paint for the yellow on the tent. Well I went to sleep still thinking about what I did wrong..& it was that I grouped the tents & copied them. So every time I changed the setting on the tent & shadow...whatever one I changed last was what both stayed. You have to ungroup!! Then I kept thinking I need water! The Elephant needs a water trough !! I learned in the process and I really like the way it turned out.
I made this card for the following challenges:
More Than Favors Wacky Wednesday - Manly Card (circus is for men right?)

Thanks for stopping by
