Sending Smiles...

Today I am sharing a card I created for Mama Elephant's current challenge. The prize is awesome… a 6 month term on the Mama Elephant Challenge DT. Amazing, right?
The challenge is simple - create a card inspired by this gorgeous photo:
I was inspired by the lovely combination of aqua and white, plus the bath salts immediately made me think of Rock Candy Distress Glitter. Yum.
For my card, I used the cute teddy from Mama Elephant's Nursery Deco set and a sentiment from Up and Away. I added a little smile to the teddy so it matched the sentiment :) And wiggle eyes… because I love them. :)
The side panel is created with a portion of Simon Says Stamp's Repeated Hearts stencil, to which I added white embossing paste and Rock Candy glitter.
I also added some glitter to my teddy's tummy.
I love Mama Elephant's stamps - they are just my cup of tea. Cute and happy. Still waiting for their amazing Panda set to be in stock somewhere… :)
Bye for now.

Awww! This is such a sweet card! I love this little bear. I've never thought of giving him googly eyes. :-) That little line of stitching is perfect, as are the sparkly stripes. The pandas came home to me recently - I love them as much as I love this bear. ;-)
