even elephants embellish off the wall

brace yourselves, i actually made a card with no owls or trees! ha ha! i know, those are few and far between. but don't worry, i made up for that with lots of little, tiny hearts! why have those become a staple of mine? i have no clue, but i can't seem to hide from them!

not only that! - but this post is a two-for! two challenges/two different cards in one post. oh yeah, i told you to brace yourself! :)

the first card is the non-owl/tree card referred to is for the latest
embellish magazine color challenge: use the colors below (yellow, gray, black and white) and a stamped background. so here we go!

little baby elephants are just so cute! and i thought these non-traditional baby colors would be a great compliment to a new baby card! i masked the hearts on the background of the paper (through a punched out heart on scrap paper!).

the elephant was stamped twice and then i popped up the ears and added a little bling eye for fun! to add to the fun, i also glimmer mist-ed the elephant! the sentiment was created with thickers, and i just added the punched out hearts randomly to them, i LOVE how that turned out. i think it's my favorite part of the card!

the next card is for off the wall craftiness! i love those color challenges! below are the inspiration colors for this week:

and here's my card! just a nutty little birthday card! i added some browns to the card, forgive me! but the squirrel and acorns had to be brown-y. :)

the acorns were stamped twice on the two afore mentioned browns, and then one layer was popped up. i also popped up the balloons and the sentiment - for which i used the hero arts stamps.

thanks again!
enjoy and good luck!
