Mama Elephant May Stampede

**If you are looking for the Nina B Designs blog hop, please scroll down!**
Welcome to the Mama Elephant May Design Team blog hop! Our May release is now live and available for purchase in the store:www.mamaelephant.com.

To celebrate the new release, Mama Elephant is giving away 3 gift certificates worth $20.00 each to 3 lucky people! Winners will be chosen at random from the collective blogs in the Stampede. Winners will be announced on the blog on May 19th.

I used the new stamp set called "Wanderlust", and combined it with some fabulous Glitz product!  Here is what I created!
Instructions:
1. Make A2 card from white cardstock.
2. Cut background paper slightly smaller, then adhere.
3. Adhere the journal card at an angle to the front.
4. Wrap a strip of vellum around the middle, then stamp the sentiment to it. 
5. Layer the woodgrain block at the opposite angle with a striped paper strip & glittered tab.
6. Layer the hello banner & giant rhinestone to the top of the woodgrain block.
7. Cut the journey sticker in half, and adhere to the top & bottom of the journal card.
8. Add the glitter arrow & woodgrain arrow to the top, then accent with a jewel.
9. Add the heart sticker & woodgrain epoxy stickers to the top of the journal card.
10. Accent the front with sequins, jewels & a wood veneer embellishment to finish.
