Mama Elephant January Stampede

Happy Tuesday, everyone!  Welcome to the January Mama Elephant Stampede!!  I am so happy to be joining in this month as a guest designer for Mama Elephant, and today is my first post joining in!!  All of the brand new stamp sets are now released and available for sale at the Mama Elephant Shop, so be sure to head on over there and get your favorites!  **If you are looking for the Nina B Design's Blog Hop post, just scroll down or click here!  If you are looking for my Flourishes Timeless Tuesday post, click here.**

The January Stampede is a blog hop, and you should have arrived here from Mariana Grigsby's blog.  If not...never fear!  When you scroll to the bottom of my post I will have a list of all the participants, and you can start from the very beginning at the Mama Elephant blog!!  You are definitely going to want to join in on this blog hop, because Mama Elephant is giving away (3) $20 gift certificates to the shop....comments will be chosen randomly from all the blogs on the hop, so the more you comment, the higher your chance of winning!  But please, only one comment per blog!  :)

I chose to use the new stamp set called "Smitten" for my card today.  This is a super fun love themed stamp set with trendy sentiments and a really trendy feather.  Totally loving it...and how my card turned out.  Check it!
Instructions:
1. Make A2 card from white cardstock, then round the lower right corner.
2. Layer diecuts, stickers, a rhinestone circle a strip of washi & a piece of doily above the rounded corner.
3. Cut a banner edge to a polka dot paper strip, then stamp the sentiment to it.
4. Stamp th feather to patterned paper, then cut out.
5. Layer the banner sentiment, feather and a tab sticker together, then layer to the front with foam adhesive.
6. Tie a bow from brown twine, thread a button around the center, and adhere to the sentiment banner.
7. Add a scattering of confetti stars, jewels & pearls to finish.
