This post includes my latest play with the cute animals from Mama Elephant's stamp set, Up Up and Away. A gorgeous set, but a new one for me. Here is my card for this week.
As I said, this is a new stamp set for me, and my first card - seen below - just didn't seem right without some colour beneath the image, so I couldn't really enter it into the challenge, because there is NO white space. However, I loved making it, and the soft effect created by the coordinating colours and paper pieced umbrella.
This final card, using the last of the animals, is for my youngest grand-daughter, whose birthday is not until November. However, I'll probably give it to her some time in October, when we are visiting them in the US - I love to see her face when she opens her present! She loves rainbows, and usually manages to draw them into every picture, so this background paper (from SSS card kit) with its tiny rainbows, hearts and stars is perfect for her. Not CAS at all of course, but I don't think she would like a card that was too CAS yet! In time, I'm sure she will, but until then, it's incumbent on me to fit in as much as I can onto a card - it shows how much I care lol!
