ME Stamp Highlight: Hello

Happy Monday, everyone!  I hope you are having a great start to your week!  How was your Sunday?  Mine was pretty quiet...I feel like I am coming down with a cold, so I stuck around the house for the most part.  I did spend a little bit of time at my crafty desk, and I did go to church that evening...here is hoping that I don't get a full blown cold, and that maybe I am just a little run down {please, oh please, oh please....}  Tee hee!

Today I have another new Mama Elephant stamp set to share with you, and this time around it is the "Hello" set!  Speech bubbles are all the rage these days, and this set combines that trendy icon with a very elegant and beautiful scripted font.  I combined it with the Prima "Hello Pastel" collection to create a card celebrating the arrival of spring!  Here is what I created:
 Instructions:
1. Make A2 card from white cardstock, then round the right corners.
2. Cut a pink wood paper strip and a dotted paper strip, then adhere to the left side.
3. Cut a striped paper block, round the right corners and layer to the front with two cardstock stickers.
4. Add two strips of aqua chevron paper & a dotted triangle to the striped block, then layer a jewel strip over them.
5. Cut a floral paper block, layer to the front with foam adhesive, then add a banner sticker to the upper right corner.
6. Stamp the sentiment to cardstock, cut out and adhere to the floral block with alpha stickers to make the sentiment.
7. Add a jewel frame to the left of the sentiment bubble, then accent the floral block with a bird clip & clear flower.
8. Add two jewels to the upper left corner to finish.
