Next Batch

 I have my next installation of cards from the one-sheet wonder template I've been working on.  Four more done, 5 pieces left to go. You can see the others here and here.

I had originally die cut that fancy "doily" for one of the other cards and it didn't work out, but it was perfect for this card.

I added some silver glitter paste to it to give it some fabulous shine!  You can see it in the photo below.
For the second card, I added a vellum panel; it softens the background but doesn't add any extra pattern.
On both that card and the next card, I used the same circle background stamp to create a little bit of interest.
For the last one, I actually had to cut and piece the strips of patterned paper together.  The original pieces were too short, but by hiding the cut behind the ribbon panel, they look like they are the perfect length!  I used a second stamp set for the sentiment on this one.  None of the sentiments from the elephants set would fit on the white panel.

Stamps: MFT "Adorable Elephants"; Simon Says Stamp "Round and round" background stamp
