Simon Says Die Crazy!

This card is my take on the challenge.

Die crazy Wplus9

I started with sponging a white cardstock panel with some distress inks. I have used Abandoned Coral, Mustard Seed, Chipped Sapphire and Dried Marigold. I made sure they blended well. Then used Hey, Hi Hello die set to die cut the speech bubbles out. I wondered for a bit whether to keep the words inside the speech bubbles  or take it out or swapp. In the end, I decided to keep them as it is. I adhered these speech bubbles randomly on a white card panel. Trimmed this panel to size. The lower panel is sponged with Mustard Seed and Dried Marigold. I stamped the sentiment from the Unforgettable stamp set using black ink. I stamped, coloured and die cut the elephant from the Unforgettable stamp set and adhered in the middle using foam adhesives.
