Hi Everyone,

at Less is More they want to see GREEN and BLUE - a gorgeous color combination. And at Addicted to CAS the theme is JOY. Had to combine the two.
Also had to take a break from making Christmas cards... If I think about joy that cute little elephant form Happy Little Stampers comes to mind - he is just so joyful!

I took some distress stains and slammed them onto my cardstock. Stamped the elephant and die cut the letters - they are by Papertrey. I did not quite clean my paintbrush, so the Y is a combination of green and blue - forgive me LIM.....Put some glossy accents on the balloon.

I hope I brought a little bit of joy into your life!
Happy Stamping!

Oh my stars...that little ellie set atop the 'slammed down' distress inks is a total cutie patootie! Joy? Absolutely!

Boy, am I ever glad you slammed those two colors together. This card is brilliant. It must really be tough to be such a genius.
