Don't Forget ... I Love You!

Hello!  I am happy to say I am back to working on my "love" cards!  I love this holiday because all these cards can be used year around for birthdays or other occasions.  But, because they have a theme, the cards are easy to create!  So fun!  Today's card is an idea I thought of as soon as I saw DeNami's new elephant stamp.  All the cards I have seen made with it, they use the elephant for a baby card.  But, I had another idea.  The same convention that I bought the elephant stamp, I found the perfect sentiment at the Morning Star booth making my idea complete!   This card is the result!  I love it!  Enjoy ...

 


So, do you love how my little elephant has a string tied around his trunk so you won't forget?  I love how I can see stamps and immediately have a perfect idea!  I love the colors of the card, the layout and the added flowers.  I do want you to also notice how I pierced the white circle behind the elephant.  I don't often do this because I am always afraid I will mess it up.  But I think this time I did good!  The hardest part I had was finding a darker pink color cardstock that would coordinate with the brown and lighter pink.  But, once I picked this color, it all came together with the ribbon, the flowers, and the brads.  So, I guess it was a good choice!
