Simon Says Stamp + Mama Elephant Summer Garden Blog Hop

Hey folks, today the ME team is joining forces with Simon Says Stamp in celebration of our Summer Garden collaboration. We designed this exclusive to Simon Says Stamp set for their latest release. I would have to say this is the most feminine stamp set we have designed to date! It's filled with beautiful hand drawn florals perfect for Spring and the upcoming wedding season! And it has a matching die set!

Up for grabs is a $25 gift certificate that Simon Say Stamp is generously offering to one winner from all the comments left o the blog hop!

Here's the card I whipped up using the Summer Garden stamp and die set.



I went for a colorful tie-dye florals created with watercolors. The center of the florals were colored with my new Wink of Luna brush pens in Gold. So pretty! I finished off the card by coloring random white dot son the outer petals of the flowers to give it a bit more detail, totaling channeling my inner Nichol. ;)
