(Not) The Winter Blues

Shopping Our Stash has a Winter Blues challenge to create a card in shades of blue, but NOT a winter card.  I made some very pretty trash today.  I got too far into my head, and over thought the challenge.  First, my pretty trash:
It just doesn't look right.  Off balance?  Poor layout?  Maybe needs a ribbon on the circle element?  Sigh.  If at first you don't succeed...
The elephant is popped up on two Spellbinders die cuts.  I'm not in love (I think the twill tape is too wide and too long), but it's acceptable. 

What are you celebrating?  Come share with us at Words 2 Craft By!!!
