Simply Wonderful



March4-1


   Good Afternoon! I am happy to be here today to show you a card that I am super excited about, and I am playing along with a couple of challenges, something I have not done in a LONG time!  I have had two Mama Elephants stamp sets just sitting, waiting to  be played with so I thought playing along with the Mama Elephant Sketch Challenge would give me the perfect reason to get out my ME stamps! Here is the sketch:


   I used the Mama Elephant stamp set "Smitten" to create my card.  The ink colors I used are all from Stampin Up, Always Artichoke, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler, and Pool Party. Such a beautiful combination! I stamped the feather multiple times to create my background. I used my YNS Banner dies on card stock, and on burlap. LOVE how the burlap added such great texture to my card. What can I say, I am loving the burlap trend right now! I embossed my card stock layer using the Linen/Canvas impression plate from PTI.   Today I am also playing along with this weeks CAS-ual Friday Challenge: Wallpaper             



I am so happy you stopped by. Have a great day!

A stunning card, Veronica! I'm amazed at how neat the ends of the burlap are after being die cut. Good to know! Great color selection too. Thanks for joining the CAS-ual Fridays Challenge!
