Hi Everyone!  I hope you are having a good day.  I just love the new Sparkle N Sprinkle stamp set Ellie the Elephant 553. She is the cutest thing! I had so much fun making my card. Don't you love her little mouse friend too?

I love using the 6 x 6 paper pads that have coordinated papers, so I grabbed one of mine and cut the windows using graduated sizes of the same die from a few of the papers. I pop dotted one on top of the other.  Sparkle embossing powder EP107  was used on the top yellow layer.

I used Purple Potion velvet glitter Gm2001 on Ellie's toenails, mouth and around the flowers.

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have fun making your own projects with this cute set!
Have a wonderful day!
