Mama Elephant & Me September Challenge

Happy Monday, my friends! It's a new month and that also means that there is a new challenge over at Mama Elephant & Me! Here is the new challenge.


Combine paper piecing on a thank you card and submit for a chance to win a stamp set of your choice! Here is what I came up with for the challenge.


It's been a while since I have done any paper piecing, so this one took me quite a while to finish. =)


I chose to work with the cute little monkey and the bundle of balloons from Up and Away set for my card. The patterned paper is from Pink Paislee's Pen Pal collection.


I cut up a watercolor background very similar to the one in this card and used a portion of it to anchor the image. Some random watercolor drops were added to the card front for a little interest. The sentiment is from the versatile Many Thanks set.

That's all for now. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members created for this challenge over at Mama Elephant & Me! There is no limit on how many entries you can submit, but you must use at least one Mama Elephant stamp to be eligible to win the prize. The winner will receive a stamp set of choice. You have until September 28th to enter for a chance to win! I can't wait to see what you come up with for this fun challenge! =)

Have a happy day and thanks for stopping by!
