November Mix it Up Challenge with Mama Elephant. I paired Essentials by Ellen's Cozy Christmas stamps and Home & Hearth dies with Mama Elephant's Up and Away. And I've always wondered...I know this little guys is adorable, but what exactly is he? Anyone know? My colors and idea to use a tree were inspired by Merry Monday #179, and I added the silver ink (yes, it truly is silver...hard to capture that!) because of CAS-ual Fridays: CFC #145: Precious Metals Challenge. If you look really closely, you can see that the silver stripes really do shimmer. Oh, and I forgot how fun it is to add glossy accents to embellishments...kind of makes them like the fun puffy enamel shapes you can buy.
This tag ended up being more labor intensive than I intended, so I decided it had to go to an extremely special recipient...my sweet daughter. As much as I love card making, my true joy lies in being a mother. Here's my special little one in all her Halloween glory...
And here's her vibrant big brother whom we adore. He would definitely not appreciate the colors on this tag, though. :)
Okay, I got a little side tracked. I'm hoping you don't mind. :) Here's one last shot of the tag just to get us back on track. Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope your day is full of whatever or whomever brings you joy. Thanks for sharing in mine. :)
