Under the Big Top... So Much Fun!

This week at A La Card Monkey we just want to have fun! So pick one of you favorite stamp sets and make a card or even a 3D project. I had this set still on my desk from the last card I made... so I decided to make another one with a different stamp. The Elephant is so cute, I used markers and Aqua painter on it to get the color just right.

I really love when Stampin' Up coordinates paper and stamp sets together, I wish they did it more. They retired this ribbon a few years ago and brought it back this year!! I was so happy I still had mine.

I punched out the large oval then cut it in half taped it to the back of the Decorative label, then added another Decorative label behind it (like a sandwich).

Wow... I love the Bow!

Very cool card Shirley. The colors are so vibrant and the little elephant is balancing for dear life! I love the background paper too. TFS.
