There aren’t many critters more adorable than the Wild Rose Studio Bella the Elephant. I admired the sweetness of Wild Rose Studio stamps for almost a year before I finally got any.
I put several on my Amazon Wish List, and my dear husband got them for me for Christmas. I have had so much fun making cards with them!

In this stamp, Bella the Elephant is sending birthday wishes by bringing an envelope full of love and two beautifully wrapped presents. I’d love to get some presents from the sweet girl walking across the lush grass dotted with flowers and butterflies circling her head.
