Mama Elephant March Stampede


Hello, hello, hello! Welcome to the Mama Elephant Design Team Stampede!  Have you been checking out the sneaks?  The full release was revealed yesterday and they are already live on the Mama Elephant site}.  Today, I'm sharing a project using the new Make a Wish set!  


I used one of the awesome sentiments from the set as the focal point of the card.Don't you just love the lettering?  The lettering is so beautiful and I love the oversized scale too!  The balloons were made using the Party Kit dies and the panda is from Pandamonium (I added a little sideways grin on him;).  For a different look, I colored the balloons with Copics instead of using colored card stock.  I love how it turned out!  



That's it from me!  Now before you finish stampeding, don't forget the giveaway!

GIVEAWAY ALERT! To celebrate the new release, Mama Elephant is giving away one of each of the new stamps released! Winners will be chosen at random from the collective blogs in the Stampede. Winners will be announced on the blog on the last Stamp Highlights Day. You have up to 3 chances to qualify to win! Just leave a separate comment for each!
