Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge

Hi friends-

I'm playing along today with the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge:

This challenge runs until October 5, 2011, so you still have time to create a project and link it up! 

The challenge this round is use Paper Smooches Stamps to make a card/project based on this inspiration photo: 

So sweet, right?  Well, I decided to go with the baby theme and came up with this little number:

Welcome Baby 

I stamped and paper pieced the mama and baby elephant from A Little Lovin' and mounted it to a piece of patterned paper that I had die-cut with PTI's notebook die. The baby elephant was given it's spots courtesy of WMS's Gingham and Co,  Mama elephant was stamped on pink cardstock, trimmed and pieced.  I stamped the sentiment in brown ink and inked the edges of the die cut.

The card was made from Kraft cardstock and then I adhered a panel of patterned paper from Fancy Pant's Baby Mine collection.  Before adhering, I inked the edges of the patterned paper and wrapped the panel with kelly green ribbon, adhered the notebook die cut at an angle with dimensional adhesive and finished it off with two wee clothes pins.

Looking forward to checking out everyone's sweet creations.  Thanks for stopping by!
