Ellie Elephant...

Good Afternoon Everyone!  Oh what a busy day so far!  I spent all morning grocery shopping and working on 'business stuff' and I'm exhausted!!!  Time for a little fun now.  I've earned it :-)

I hope you're all signing up for my CANDY!  I'm so sorry that the little 'froggie' thingy didn't work.  Sometimes you try something new and it just doesn't work out!  I'll try to get it right next time.

I've got a cute little card for you today.  I bought these Stamposaurus stamps a little while back and I finally found some time to ink one up.  They are just adorable!

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Sweet Stampin Challenge - Spring Flowers

Copic Creations - We're Cool

Sir Stampalot Challenge- All Creatures Great and Small

Paperplay Challenges - Stamp It Out

I hope you enjoy my card :-)

Ellie Elephant
This little sweetie is 'Ellie Elephant'.  She's absolutely precious!  Oh boy does she make me think of spring!!!  I colored her up with some Copics and cut with my Spellbinders die.  The background was also cut with a SB die.  The sweet little swirls were cut with a die by Marianne Designs.   It's so delicate and worked perfectly with this project.

I wanted to do a little something different this time so I folded the card down the middle like a tent.  I love how the image pops up and really stands out.  The dp's are from BG's 'Green at Heart' collection.  The lace is from my stash.  I threaded some of it with some string and pulled it together to form a flower.  The purple and pink flowers are all from WOC and I've covered them with stardust Stickles.  I've also got some green Stickles on the swirls.

This is how it looks if it's lying flat.  The finished size is 5.5" x 5.5".  The sentiment is from a new set that I got from Whimsy Stamps...they're called 'Friendship'.  It has a really nice ticket die that is sold separately.  It makes it really easy to cut out the stamped sentiment.  Just love it!

Well, that's it for today.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  You can find this card for sale at my Etsy Shop.
