So Stinkin' Cute!

This week's CAS challenge is to use paper piecing on your card. As soon as I saw this elephant stamp, I knew it'd be perfect for this technique. Polka dots and gingham are two of my favorite patterns, so I thought it'd be fun to put them together. Plus, I got to use one of my new Papertrey buttons.

This is such an easy technique, so I really, really think you should play along with us this week. Details can be found here.

Stamps: Elephants (Hero Arts)
Paper: Lemon Tart, white, Aqua Mist dp (PTI)
Ink: Basic Black
Accessories: scalloped edge punch & corner rounder punch (SU), ribbon (SU), button (PTI)
