I'm Seeing Pink Elephants!

Well, you can't have a 'Seeing Double' Challenge without pink elephants, can you!
This is my second DT card for OSAAT challenge. All you have to do, is make a card which has two of something on it, or you can even make two things that match!
I made this card on the same lines as the first card I made. (see Post below this one) I've used Elle Blowing Bubbles one of the many images you can find over on Lexi's Creations in the Stitchy Bear Stamp Store, (Don't forget there's a 'Bundle' Sale going on right now!) but I've made this card a little different.
I wanted something else on the front so it wasn't just a straight forward gate fold card, I wanted something that would make the images stand out more, so with this card, (also made using the freebie gingham, link on my side bar) I added a bit more to the 'gate' and made it a little longer, and then folded it so that..
...when you opened it... would look like this...

Two elephants!

The image has been flipped again, (Free GIMP soft ware download) so the two little elephants can face each other, and just as I did with the cute giraffe, (see below post) I've paper pieced them but haven't decoupaged them this time. The extra colouring was done with Promaker pens.
I thought the little washing line just a cute idea and just drew the little clothes straight on to patterned paper, leaving little shoulder tags to act as 'pegs' and make it easier for them to stay glued to the washing line! (but I did lose a sock by the time I got outside to take the picture!)For the freebie link to the sentiment and font see post below! (cos I'm too lazy ~ and it's far too sunny to stay inside today!!)
