THE PINK ELEPHANT CHALLENGE

You may remember that last week I told you how a girl I know sadly lost her husband... well what's worse is that they have a little girl who is now going to have to grow up with the love of her Daddy... there is nothing on God's green earth that can make up for this... but I thought I would send her a nice bright card made just for her.... so I decided to incorporate it with the challenge this week over at The Pink Elephant Challenge.
This is a fabulous sketch by Robin & it worked perfect for my card. Firstly I took two strips of some bright orangy coloured card from DCWV, inked the edges in blue & added some doodling then attached to my base card. Next up some blue hand writing paper by Efco which again I inked & doodled on before attached to my card. Next came the mount for my image which is a deep pink by DCWV... here I simply sanded the card to show the core & some doodling of course... mounted onto base card. For my image & flowers I used Messy Rabbit as he is cute & adorable & looks very very huggable... they have been coloured using a mixture of Sakura Stardust & Glaze pens.... my favourites of course... The images were then cut out & attached to the base card... Messy is laid almost flat whilst the flowers are slightly higher mounted using silicone glue. I curled a little piece of wire & attached under one of the flowers & for the sentiment I used a large Fiskars hole punch for the circles which I then inked & doodled before writing the letters inside using a Sakura Pigma Micron pen. Attached these using some glue & voila.... my finished card....
Well I'm off now as another list of duties to do today... shopping, work, antibiotics to give to Buddy.... thank you for all your lovely kind comments & he is doing much better today... finished off all of last nights dinner so he's now on to a fresh batch.. looks revolting but he's loving it...
Hopefully if I get things in the right order I'll make it back later with another little creation.
Happy crafting
