Papertrey's January Guest Star Stamper Entry

Here is my entry for tonight's GSS contest on Papertrey! I have another, and will show it at some point, lol, but yesterday just got away from me. don't we all wish there would come a day when we didn't have to go to work? lol, well, since tonight is their release, and there is lots I want to buy, I guess I will head out tonight thankful I can go to work and earn some money to play with.

I used the set Guidelines and stamped the background lines in Spring Rain. Next I stamped one of the images in Spring Rain. A second image filled in the open spots with Certainly Celery. It looks great! the card is big, and determined by the number of 'tiles' I wanted to highlight. The elephant from Bitty Baby Blessings was colored in the same Copics Nichole Heady used~ B21 and B95. Hey! My elephant looks just like hers! The sentiment is also from Bitty Baby Blessings, cut out with a Nesty label, then glued to Spring Rain grosgrain ribbon. The little hearts were a perfect match from my stash, I just put a bit of linen thread through them and attached with some glue dots. The elephant is sitting on punched out circles, I used nesties, but the green scalloped circle is the SU punch.

Oh I love this baby card. The background you made looks wonderful! I really want to get this set but so far can't really justify the cost (shipping to Canada, exchange). In the meantime I'll just have to look and be envious of creations like yours!
