Mama Elephant and Simon Says Stamp Anniversary card

Hello everyone,

I hope you had a great Easter and enjoyed your chocolate. I had a really lovely weekend with birthday celebrations for my youngest son who is now 30!!, and then a relaxing few days with spring sunshine blessing us for the duration.

As we had company, I didn't get any time to craft so I sat down to play today and join in with a few challenges I haven't tried before. I came up with this CAS card:-






I used this sketch over at Showcase your Style,




and this one from Your Next Stamp

YNSSketch-11

and I incorporated the challenge at Happy Little Stampers




I started with an A2 card base that I embossed with a stitched rectangle die, and then used two Simon Says Stamp stencils -  Falling Hearts and Falling Snow along with a Memory Box Starry Nights one to stencil the backgrounds on each square in pink ink. I then matted them onto stitched square mats, and over stamped the I love you with a Mama Elephant stamp and embossed it with clear embossing powder. The anniversary sentiment is from Papertrey Ink and I added a little heart to dot the i with, but the card looked a little unfinished somehow, so I used a score board to emboss a couple of lines above and below the squares



Thanks for stopping by.
