Freshly Made Sketches: Hip Hip Hooray

It's time for a new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches! Today we have a sketch by Amy!

I love the sweet elephants that came out from a number of companies.  I picked the set Ellie by Avery Elle.  It only comes with one elephant while others come with a number of elephants in various cute positions. My all-time favorite elephant is the little guy peeking over an edge in the set Unforgettable by WPlus9 but I just couldn't justify buying all the other elephants since I really have no reason to own even one!!  I thought I better give myself a reason to use the one elephant that I do own so I brought Ellie out for this sketch

Hip Hip Hooray

It doesn't get much sweeter than little Ellie and the heart-shaped balloon!

There is more dimension in the card than the above picture shows.

I am most definitely going to have to find more reasons to use Ellie!

I hope to see you playing along.  Be sure to check out the FMS Blog for inspiration from the entire design team.  Also head to Amy's blog Amy's Paper Crafts to see her wonderful, clean style.



  1. This little guy is as sweet as can be! Adorable card! Love all the hearts in the background too!

  2. This is darling Kim, she is a sweet little Ellie!!

  3. I love how everything ties together on this cute card. And I can't imagine needing any other elephants than Ellie -- she is adorable. Love how you've used this sketch, Kim!

  4. I love this little elephant and you've created a cute scene with the balloon. Fabulous card, Kim.

  5. I never really saw myself as a person who needed an elephant stamp either, but I have to admit that every time I see one I think I should really get one! Love how you colored this little guy. In fact, I love the whole color combo!!

  6. Hello Kim: I've been wanting this little elephant images for a while and now, after seeing your card, I must have a set!!
    Love, love this card, so sweet and festive, this cutie looks adorable and it's great that it has the die set too.
    Thank you for sharing.

  7. We have to justify owning stamps??? ;-) This elephant is adorable and I've been on the fence with many of them for the same reason. What a sweet card!

  8. Love your use of sequins and clouds and the little heart balloon is so stinkin' cute!
