Mama Elephant August Stampede

Welcome to the Mama Elephant August Design Team blog hop! Our August release is now live and available for purchase in the store: www.mamaelephant.com.

I played with a combination of the new Message Bands stamp set + Modern Borders stamp set for this card. After stamping the solid stamp strip from Message Bands a few times, I added a few patterned strips of washi tape on top. I like to finish off a card with sequins :)

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 the last Stamp Highlight day.
