It's a Good Day To Be Happy!

Hello everyone! I love this week’s sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch by Sam Simpson, and thought it would be fun to take out my new Mama Elephant stamps and dies and create this card.


I love the shapes and stitching on the Landscape Trio dies, so I placed them so that the monkey is floating above the clouds carrying helium balloons. I also wanted some texture on this card, so I embossed my card base with my PTI Impression Plate and added a few silver stars to the sky. 

Well, that’s it for me ~ I hope everyone has a great week ahead! Take care, and thanks so much for stopping by!
Barb
