Mama Elephant and Me! Take #2

Hi!  So today I am sharing a card that I feel is a bit different than my norm, but I had so much fun thinking outside of my little box and I love the results.  This card is based on the latest Mama Elephant and Me Challenge: Paper Piecing + Thanks...

Supplies Used:
Stamps: Mama Elephant (sentiment: Say What, "hot air balloon": Lights Out)
Ink: Memento, Jeni Bowling
Patterned Paper: Heidi Swapp
Embossing Paste
Stencil: Studio Calico
Washi Tape
Star Sequins
Twine: Hemptique

I started this card by trimming my sun ray patterned paper.  I used chalk ink around the edges and then stamped the thanks so much off once before stamping it on to the patterned paper.  I then stamped the light bulb image onto various patterned papers and created my own hot air balloon!  After I added this to my cardbase I added my stenciling and let dry.  I then finished with the sequins, washi tape and twine.

Hope you liked my out of the box card today!
Happy Crafting!
