Sending Smiles

Hello Friends,

Today I am going to share with you a card that I made for the new Mama Elephant Challenge.   Here is my card:

For this A2 card I started with white cardstock for the base, then I added a 4 inch X 5 1/4 inch of the pink patterned paper.  Next I stamped the bunny and the balloons from the Mama Elephant "Up and Away" stamp set onto white paper and colored them with copic markers and then fussy cut them out and added them to the card.  Next I stamped the stars from  the Mama Elephant "In My Heart" stamp set in black ink onto the card. Next I stamped the sentiment from the Mama Elephant "Up and Away" stamp set in pink ink and then cut it out with a die cut and inked the edges with the pink ink and then added that to the card.  Next I stamped some cloud stamps with Versamark and then used white embossing powder and heated that with my heat gun.  Once the paper was cool I fussy cut out the clouds and added them to the card.  We were to get our inspiration for our card from this magazine cover:

So what do you think?  Did I meet the challenge??  Be sure to check out the other beautiful cards for this challenge here and feel free to leave some love on the blog posts letting everyone know what you really love about their card!!
I hope I have inspired you to create something beautiful today!!
