Mama Elephant March Stampede!

This is my third post of the day. Please click here to see my post for March Krafty Peeks Day 3 and click here to see my post for CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #94. Or you can scroll down to see all three of my posts. Thanks! =)


Hi and welcome to Mama Elephant March Stampede! If you arrived from Pearl Lui's Blog you are on the right track. If not, you can start the hop from Mama Elephant Blog. All the new March stamps are available starting NOW over at the Mama Elephant Store! Here is my card made using one of the new stamp sets.


I built a background using the frame from Today Was set. This is a set perfect for Project Life, but also good for card making! =)


The sentiment is also from the Today Was set and the little arrow is from Say What set.

That's all from me. I am the last stop of today's hop. Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win!
