Addicted to Stamps & More #192 - Make Your Mark






Hi there ~
It's time for another 'Make Your Mark' challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More! Our Sponsor is Sami Stamps, and they are offering a $12.00 gift certificate to the store.

Here is my card:



From the day this MFT Adorable Elephants stamp and die set was released, I knew I 'had to have it'! I missed the first round to order it and had to wait several weeks until it was back in stock, and when that happened, I was all in! I did some partial die cutting for the aperture (a famous Laura Bassen technique), and blended Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers for the background. I colored the images with Copics, and added a touch of WOS to the flowers and butterflies...and that was it!

My incredibly talented teammates have created some beautiful cards for this challenge, and we would love for you to stop by the ATSM Blog for a visit, and play along with us this week!

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog,
