More Adorable Elephants

 I finished three more cards with my one-sheet wonder template.  You can see the first three here.   These little elephants are so adorable, they make any card look good!!
For card #2, here, I altered my flowers a little bit.  Each flower was one layer and had a clear rhinestone center.  I decided to make them look a little bit more like the little daisies stamped below the sentiment.  So, I gently took off the rhinestones, adhered two flower together to make them more full, and then added yellow enamel dots to the centers.
For the last one, I added a belated birthday sentiment.  Unlike what the sentiment says, I am quite often late with my birthday wishes.  I don't forget, I just don't get them sent out on time.  But I think the recipient will forgive me because the elephant is so cute!!

CARD #1
Stamps: MFT "Adorable Elephants" image and sentiment

Your sweet card #1 is so cute and perfectly captures all of the AHSC sketch elements. The yellow die cut is really pretty and the little elephant could not be cuter! I love the way you stamped the sentiment around the edge of the circle.
Thank you for sharing your cards with Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.
