This is for Mandy's uber-fun Dr. Seuss inspired challenge. This may be one of the fastest cards I have ever made. Whoo hoo!
Ok, so, my brother was the Mayor of Who-ville in a college production of Seussical the Musical and his costume was this yellow zoot suit. My brother is over 6 feet tall so this was an impressive sight. (He kept the suit, too!) Because of this, I felt compelled to use yellow and elephants. I kissed the polka dot background onto the elephant so there are some very faint dots. As a child, though, I was never very into Horton Hears a Who. I liked To Think That I Saw it on Mulberry Street, the Lorax, and Sneeches. I tried to add some Mulberry Street whimsy with a green Odd Bird Owl and I gave mr. elephant here some stars upon thars. And that Hello! from Simply Circles has always reminded me of Dr. Seuss. So there you have it. I think this write-up took me more time than the card!

WOW! What a way to combine sooo many Seuss books in one card! Your elephant is positively beautiful...I really like his stars! Your sentiment looks EXACTLY like a Seuss font! Thanks so much for playing my challenge! This is so bright and cheery, just like Seuss!
