Mother's Day Card Using Sweet Pea Zentangle Elephant, Cricut Art Philosophy and Cricut Artfully Sent Cartridges

Hello friends in Blogland!  I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying their weather. Hopefully you are finding time to craft.  It keeps me sane. LOL!

It is time for Sweet Pea Progressive Challenge Part 2; which ends April 5th on their Facebook group page.  You still have time to enter.  Purchase Sweet Pea Courtney McAnsh's Zentangle Elephant  on Sweet Pea website and create a card, then post it. Watch for the next Progressive Challenge.  It is a great way to build up your inventory of Sweet Pea digital stamps.  I love this one.  I wanted to create another one using it again, right after I created this one.  LOL!  It is so cute!
