Mama Elephant March Stampede

Welcome to the Mama Elephant March Stampede! Our March release is now live and available for purchase in the store HERE

I used the Lovely Mums set to make a Mother's Day card for my mom. Yay for planning ahead ;) I used the floral outline stamps and a masking technique to overlap the flowers. Then I painted them in with my watercolors. Some ribbon & washi tape (I can't not use washi tape on anything, I'm afraid) at the bottom and voila!

To celebrate the new release, Mama Elephant is giving away 3 gift certificates worth $20.00 each to 3 lucky people! Winners will be chosen at random from the collective blogs in the Stampede. Winners will be announced on the blog on Monday, March 18th. Winners have 48 hours to claim their prize.
