Mama Elephant August Challenge

Hello, friends:}

Today is a special day over on the Mama Elephant blog!!! There's a NEW challenge that starts right now!!! Be sure to stop by HERE for more details and to play along! 
I loooooooove inspiration photo challenges-- so of course I joined in the fun with the ME team! I was inspired by the following: 

  • black/white striped pillow- love b/w! 
  • the gold dinosaur- I didn't even see this at first! When I did see it, I instantly knew I wanted to add some gold glittered chevrons!
  • layered pillows- I layered a couple of patterned papers together
  • XO pink sentiment and pillow- this is where my main sentiment inspiration came from!
I was also inspired by THIS layout by Maggie Holmes-- I love her paper design and that inspired me to try stamping white lines using the ME Basic Borders stamp set on some Basic Grey papers. I also loved her washi tape and dots on the left side of her page-- so I had to recreate that for this card! LOVE!  I also used THIS tutorial to finally use some A*Muse Studio Simple Stick powder-- it works great with glitter! LOVE x10000! Other ME stamps used include Big Words, Full House, and Type It!
To create those diags-- I cut my patterned paper and stamped the Basic Border image several times before attaching it to the card base.
I hope you will join in the fun with the Mama Elephant DT and challenge. Be sure to stop by ME blog {HERE} for more details! This challenge runs ALL MONTH

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}

LOVE x 10000000 your card! ME images, the layout and the patterned paper (yes *fist pump* I have this!!) make for one eye-candy, winning, delightful, awesome combination! Again, Pure Savannah Style to the nth degree!
So, wonderful Sav, a question for you: my crafting budget has flown out the window of late - I'm on a silly spending spree (sometimes things get a little out of hand!), and *need* to add some ME to my collection. Question: your recommendations for ONE (yes, must exercise restraint) set, please? Your opinion on the most versatile, most cutest, most favouritest? Looking forward to what you suggest, as I have one long SSS order to make! Thanks and hugs!!
