A Pink Elephant?
Let me just say up front that I am not a fan of round cards. But I LOVE Mercy's sketches so I had to do this one. It's for Mercy's Tuesday Challenge #30. And it's for The Pink Elephant Challenge, a new weekly challenge blog. This week's challenge is a color challenge: pink, black, and white. Love it!
My base card is Basic Black, cut/embossed with a large scalloped circle Nestabilities die. The next layers are DP from a new pad from Making Memories called Sabrina, cut with circle dies. The focal image was stamped on Whisper White with a stamp from Inkadinkado's Floral Flourishes set. I colored the stamp with SU! markers before stamping. I punched the corners with my Ticket Corner punch, layered it on Pretty In Pink and Basic Black card stock, and popped it up on 3M foam squares. Some little flat-backed pearls add accents to this element. The bow, made of black and pink polka-dotted ribbon from my stash, finishes it off.
Thanks for dropping by!
