Sending Smiles on your B-day with Mama Elephant

As I said in my last post, I've really fallen in love with Mama Elephant stamps and dies! So cute and sweet and with great quality too.





For this first card too, I used their current challenge photo as inspiration: 
The stamps I used are from the Up and away and the dies are called Landscape trio creative cuts.


I have today off from work so I'll be playing some more - YIPPIE!
I'm also entering this card for the current Simon Says Stamp Challenge; Birthday Cards. and the dies challenge at Stamping Sensations

Have a great Monday everyone!

Hugs, Karin

Akkkk, seriously adorable, Karin!! What a cutie patootie that little guy is! Love the umbrella and the color palette, and your design is just amazing! Absolutely love the die cut card base with the wash of color in the mid section. And your candy dots pulls everything perfectly together!

Adorable card and a great take on the inspo photo. I also love how you created the background. Now you make me want to purchase the landscape cuts too! 2 quick questions, you don't mind - 1. what did you use for the green and blue background in between the landscape cuts? 2. How did you connect the die cuts? Did you hand-cut it or use the dies! Thanks!
