Irrelephant Thank You

My family has a long standing obsession of sorts with elephants.  My great-grandparents owned, operated, and lived above a bar called the White Elephant Tavern in Wisconsin.  In the front window of the tavern, they kept 3"-4" tall statue of a white elephant.  The tavern has since been sold, but our family obsession with elephants lives on.  So when my godmother saw an adorable infant sleeper covered in an elephant pattern, she just had to buy it and send it to me for my son.  The colors on this thank-you card (which I will be sending her this week) were inspired by the colors on the sleeper.
