I have been looking through designs and now think that I might be too close to yours! Can you let me know if you feel the same way? I still have time to change a few things... Thanks so much!

Hello, thank you so much for your comment. I made a small modification in the design ... I moved and reduced the elephant's trunk a little... I would be sad if I removed the elephant's trunk from the illustration completely.

Hey Nam! I'm horrible at explaining how I make textures, so here is the link that I found really helpful. He has a bunch of great tuts, and some free downloads too. For the canvas one (which is this link), when I was happy with it, I saved it as a bitmap tiff, then placed it in Illustrator, so I could make it any color I wanted. Just holler if this doesn't make sense : ) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=imdxfJrOL-c&feature=related

I'm a newbie and interested in designing cards. i've been rubber stamping and scrapbooking for years, and I think this looks like a lot of fun. Unfortunately, I am absolutely STUMPED about a few things. For one, what software is the best to use? Photoshop? Illustrator? iPhoto (ha ha ha)? And do you freehand your artwork (like city skylines, the nativity scene, etc) or is there a really cool clip art source for these types of things? Thanks for your time........

You know, I didn't even know Memoriam wasn't on their font list! I just figured it was so fabulous it had to be. You have some wonderful submissions as well.

Hi Nam! Thanks for your comment. I wish I had time to make the changes you suggested, but I'm way past the deadline. Oh well, hopefully I'll get my act together and submit earlier on the next challenge. Also- your work is gorgeous!

Hi Nam! Just wanted to say I had a burberry card in the works and never came back to it. I'm so glad to see you rocked that pattern on your latest submission! It's so chic and you always impress! :)
