Unforgettable Friend

I decided to play along with the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge this week. I've been following Taylor's blog for quite some time, and I'm glad to have a chance to try out this sketch.

To make my card, I used the set Happy Heart Day, which is on the Last Chance List. I'll be sad to see this set go - I think the elephant and mouse images are just adorable.

I paper-pieced my elephant and colored the flowers using my Aqua Painter and So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Riding Hood Red and Kiwi Kiss ink pads. I added just a bit of Crystal Effects to the flowers and heart in the elephant's trunk, for a little added dimension.

I really like the finished card. It's fun to use so many different pieces of designer series paper, which are from the Washington Apple dsp. This is such a fun, happy color combo - sure to brighten someone's day. :)

Stamps: Happy Heart Day
Paper: Bashful Blue, Riding Hood Red, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Washington Apple dsp
Ink: Black Staz-On, So Saffron, Riding Hood Red, Pumpkin Pie, Kiwi Kiss
Accessories: Aqua Painter, Coluzzle, Button Bouquet

This is one of my fav stamps too Jenn. I just bought that paper too. This card is a real piece of eye candy! I love how you paper pieced the elephant and blended those papers together so perfectly! Awesome! I'm inspired to pull out my paper and create something with it now...stay tuned:))
