All Creatures Great & Small -- For Great Impressions Stamps

It's Saturday, my day to post at Great Impressions Stamps.  Yea!  I'm having so much fun with these wonderful stamps! Today, I'm featuring a card that I made with the first Great Impressions stamps I ever purchased, quite a few years ago now.  I loved the stamps then, and I still love them now:

I used the rubber stamp Elephant & Ladybug (F520) on the outside of this card.  I colored the image with Copic markers, then used a variety of sizes of the same Spellbinders die set to create the card base and layers.  Papers for this card, and the foil tape are from Close To My Heart.  The grey ribbon is from 3 Girl JAM.

Here's the inside:

The inside is stamped with sentiment stamp God Loves (D483).  

I just love that elephant and lady bug!  I hope they make you smile, too.

I'll be back next week with more great fun from Great Impressions Stamps
