 I think I have loved almost every single set released by Birdie Brown and My Favorite Things Stamps.  This "Adorable Elephants" set is no exception!!  I actually went into my stash of Never Used stamp sets looking for something "pretty" and "flowery" to make a Mother's Day card for my mom, but one of the very first sets I came across was the elephants and there was no more looking!!!  In the past week, I have posted two cards using this same paper/color combo, so why not one more?!!  It's so pretty and fresh, and the papers were already on my work desk, so . . . You can find the other cards here and here.  So, from the previous card, I had die cut out the letters for "MOM" and I had them left over sitting on my desk.  I thought it would be really cute to pair them with this little elephant and have him holding the "O".  I gave him some little butterfly friends and stamped the sentiment on the bottom of the vertical strip of patterned paper.  I just love how it looks when a sentiment is stamped like this; it makes it a little more unique, I think.  I finished the card off with some melon colored ribbon and a bit of pale peach lace.  LOVE it!!

On the inside, I used a beautiful Mother's Day sentiment from PaperTrey Ink, and had to add another of the adorable little elephants.  This one looks like he is waving "hi", 'cause unfortunately, we live about three and a half hours away from my parents, so I won't be seeing Mom on Mother's Day.
I had a little tiny strip of patterned paper left from trimming the front panels, so I stuck it on the bottom of the panel inside to tie it together.

Stamps: MFT "BB Adorable Elephants" images and outside sentiment; Papertrey Ink "Tucked Inside: Mother" inside sentiment
Dies: Spellbinders "Classic Ovals, large"; MFT "Stitched Alphabet"
