A Stamp Set for Kids, Teens, Adults - Essentials By Ellen Bravehearted

Hi Friends! I'm really enjoying the new Essentials by Ellen Bravehearted set, and how versatile it is for kids, teens or even adults. This particular card is meant for a teen, but if you swap out the charcoal background for a white background with large pink polk-a-dots, it would be an awesome card for young kids (and this sentiment would be PERFECT for a kid in their terrible twos : ) )

While you can certainly use the stamps from Bravehearted for a circus-themed card, you're definitely not limited to that topic. I'm really loving the "you're so fierce" sentiment, which will make a wonderful congratulations, graduation, or a general "I'm proud of you" card.

This particular lion is really a mountain lion today, who's surveying his territory from the top of the Alpine Windows die cut mountains.

The card base is embossed with the Constellation Background die, and I think is great at setting the mood of a clear night sky.
One last thing ... did you notice the golden crown with the red jewel? Actually it's not a jewel, it's an Essentials by Ellen Red Droplet, and adds a nice touch to the card.

You may recall from the release blog hop I created another card with the other main image from this set, and the sentiment coming out of his roaring mouth. So many possibilities with this set!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
