CASEing Monika - take two

Monika of Creative with Monika invited me to join a personal challenge, where she CASEs one of my cards of her choice and I one of hers. This is the second time we do this. This time I chose to CASE her elephant card - it's the one in the smaller photo and you can find more photos of her card here.

So I took out my elephant stamps from Lawn Fawn and stamped them onto patterned paper and cut them out. I placed them onto a die cut heart (Memory Box) which I inked with fired brick DI.

The sentiment is heat embossed with silver EP, the stamp is from Technique Tuesday.
The background is stenciled using black DI, which I think actually looks grey when used for stenciling.
For a bit more color I added 3 sequins from my stash.

I'm sure Monika would appreciate your visit too, you can check out her post here to see her version of one of my cards and leave her some love:)

This card is for these challenges:
Crafty Creations - #298 It Takes Two
City Crafter Challenge - #279 - Paper Piecing
Papertake Weekly - Animal Magic
Inspiration Destination - #51 Always Anything Goes
