Mama Elephant Stamp Highlight: Make a Wish

Hey everyone!  Are you enjoying all the Mama Elephant highlights this week?  Today we're highlighting the new stamp set, Make a Wish!  This is the same set that I used during the Stampede.  Today, I'm using the largest of the sentiments and, boy, is it gorgeous!  Did you know that this set is hand-lettered by Pauline Ibarra?  (Visit her site and see more of her fabulous work!)  Now back to the card...


I really wanted the focus of the card to be on the sentiment, so this card is pretty CAS.  I stamped the sentiment and paper pieced some of the swirls and loops to bring in a bit of color.  I finished it off with some matching paper flags sewn to the top of the card.  Sweet and simple!  Here's a close up on all those beautiful calligraphic swirls!


Thanks for checking in today!  Come back tomorrow for more stamp highlights and today go check out what the rest of the DT has in store for this fabulous set!

Mahalo and Aloha,
