A new Challenge, Card, and an Announcement

Hello peeps! I am so excited to share the card I made for The Pink Elephant Challenge blog. This time as a designer. Yes! I have been keeping this little secret, and finally I am able to share it with all of you. Back in March, Lori invited me to be part of her design team and to be April’s guest designer. It was hard to keep this little secret, but I was waiting for Lori to make the offical announcement on her blog.  I am so happy and honored to be part of the design team and to work with such talented ladies.

Now onto my card!  This week challenge was to create a card using “aqua” color on our card. This is what I came up with. Enjoy!




I stamped the tree with aqua mist ink. To echo the aqua color, I used aqua mist cardstock from PTI too. I placed silver brads on each side of the sentiment. I was looking for embellishment when I noticed these orange gems. They look like little oranges ~ don’t you think?






This card has a lot of layers! Using a block stamp like this for this project was the perfect choice. I don’t normally buy block stamps, but I am glad I did!



Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check out the beautiful cards the rest of the design team has created for this challenge. Hope you can play along too!



Have a fabulous day…….
