My Heart is Full {Mama Elephant}

Hello there!  Today I have a card to share that I created with the Mama Elephant and ME Challenge in mind!  This month's challenge is Paper Piecing + Thank You.

My heart is full

I wanted to create sort of a shadow box effect, so I cut an A2 card base, then I cut a piece of white cardstock to measure 4" x 5.25".  I positioned this die where I wanted it and than ran it through my diecut machine.  I then cut a third piece of white card stock only slightly larger than the window opening.  I did all of my stamping and decorating on that panel and then popped the window panel over it using foam tape.  

To create my little scene, I first sponged Tumbled Glass Distress Ink on the top 2/3 of the panel to create a clouded sky.  Then, using the Landscape Trio die set, I cut some hills from patterned paper.  I used the clouds from the Landscape Trio dies to create a vellum cloud.  After adhering the hills and clouds to my panel, I stamped, colored, paper pieced and diecut my little girl from the In My Heart stamp set and set her down on the panel where I wanted her,without glueing.  I added some grass detail with copic markers and stamped some flowers and the butterfly, then popped the little girl up on some foam tape.  I stamped a sentiment from Many Thanks, then mounted the windowed panel over the scene with foam tape.  It didn't feel quite finished at that point, so I cut some tiny hearts using the Confetti die out of dark red cardstock.  I added some white gel pen accents, Wink of Stella glitter, and a coating of glossy accents to the hearts after I glued them down.

That's all for now... thanks for stopping by! :)
