Good morning everyone! I am back with a brand new creation for this week challenge over at The Pink Elephant blog. This week, we have a color challenge and our sponsor is My Favorite Things stamps. I love their stamps! They sent us images, papers, and ribbon to create our cards. Oh, about the challenge! ~ use brown on your card. So here is what I made, I hope you like it!
This card uses the super adorable Owls and Bluebells stamp. The sentiment is from the same set too! I colored the image with my prismacolor pencils and gamsol. Then, I used my spellbinder scalloped square die to cut the image.
This card has lots of layers on it. The brown, pink, and off white cardstock are from bazzil basic. I wanted to tie a bow, but it didn’t work for me. The bow was going to cover the image too much, so I ended up folding it! By the way, the pink satin ribbon is from MFT too. I love it, it is gorgeous!
I love to make my own embellishments like the ones on today’s card. This is a very nice way to add more color and texture to a card. Besides, they are so easy to make! And last but not least, I sprinkled some glitter on the flowers.
Well my time is up…. I need to go back and continue packing. I will be moving this week and won’t be able to work on anything until I unpack my supplies.
Thanks for visiting! Please be sure to check TPE blog to see all the wonderful cards the DT has created for this week challenge.
