Mama Elephant – June Stampede

June 15, 2014


Welcome to the Mama Elephant Release Design Team blog hop!  Our newest release is now live and available for purchase in the store:


I used the flowers from Bloomsies and arranged a Christmas wreath in the middle.  I love how they are so versatile when you change the colours up a bit! I adhered the little girl in the middle (from In My Heart) and left the card front sentiment-less.

June - Stampede
