Stand Out!

Hi, Two posts in one week from me, It's been a while since I did that! I'm back with a new challenge at Passion for Promarkers and this time we would like you to 'Add A Sentiment' to your projects
The DT were allowed an image to use from our sponsor and some of us chose this cute Toucan which I decided to colour differently than the traditional orange and black, I hope you like him!

Adorable Elephant

No DT card today, just a quick card I made for a friend's daughter using my latest purchase (these stamps from MFT are just the cutest! and I also got the matching dies as fussy cutting with one hand is just too frustrating and so innacurate!

I used an action wobbler on the back of my elephant and he really does wobble and then the balloon wobbles too, so cute!

Image and matching die - 'Adorable Elephants' by MFT - Seven Hills Crafts
Paper - 'Pastel Dreams' paper pad - LOTV/Nitwits
I also used the 'Stitched Circle & Flower' die from Marianne Designs
Finished off with a Happy Birthday die cut

Challenges:


'Baby Animals' - Allsorts

'Any Animal' - Sunny Day Crafting

'Pretty In Pink' - Fussy And Fancy

'Anything Goes' - Crafty Gals Corner

I chose this theme as I had been waiting to use my last purchase at LOTV, isn't he cute?! and I do love cards that are different,  so I found a great YouTube tutorial to make this one:
