This week the challenge is

Fun In The Sun 

We are showcasing  Mama Elephant Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would sure love to see them used!
The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously giving away a FABULOUS $50 voucher to shop at the  Simon Says Stamp Store! 

Here is my card for the challenge inspiration. I used Dandelion Wishes and 3D Pop Up  Card Dies from Mama Elephant. I wanted to build a scene that little critters are having fun in the sunny field.

I stared by stamping th eDandelion Wishes images on 80lb Neenah White using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored them with copic markers. I then cut them all by using Dandelion Wishes Coordinating Dies.

Next, I cut Simon Says Stamp Cotton Candy Cardstock using 3D Pop Up Cards Dies. For matting papers on the wings, I cut Bristol paper by using the dies in the set, and I colored them with distress inks.
I used Peeled Paint for green, Worn Lipstick and Dried Marigold for Coral.

Once I assembled the 3d pop up box, I adhered my images where I wanted to place. Take a closer look at those wings where I built small lovely scenes.

When you flat down the card with front wings folded down, you could also see a fun & adorable scene wide.

For the sentiment on the front wing, I used another stamp set by Mama Elephant, which is Tea with Friend Set.

This is the outer surface of the card when you unfold the front wings. Isn't it amazing that all the various dies used here are from just one dies set? I really love the Mama Elephant's 3D Pop Up Box Card Dies

As a final embellishment, I added 4mm Ballerina Pink Sequins.


So now it's YOUR turn.
