Sending Smiles

Hello everyone! I’ve been having so much fun with my new Mama Elephant stamps and dies, that I decided to enter a card into their current Photo Inspiration Challenge. The photo is gorgeous (see below), filled with elegant pinks, and burgundy as well as crystals and pearls!



Even though there are 3 really cute images in this set, I used the monkey again, and this time I placed them so that they are floating up toward the clouds. I didn’t have the right colors in my Copic collection, so I used watercolor pencils, and I added clear mini sequins and my WOS glitter pen to mimic the gems.




I thought this would be a great card for a child, so I stamped a Happy Valentine message and some hearts on the inside, and I'll be sending it off to the Cards from the Heart Card Drive

Well, that’s it for me ~ I hope everyone is doing well! Take care, and thanks so much for stopping by! 

Barb
