Pink Elephant Challenge

When I was blurfing yesterday, I came across a really great sketch site that is brand spankin new. It is called The Pink Elephant I love the name and the first challenge happens to be one of my favorite color combos. Make a card using Pink, black and white. So that is exactly what I did. I also entered this card into the Flourishes Button Challenge. Love how you can use buttons on cards and there are so many cute ones out there!
I thought I would try my hand at something I believe is called a Joy Fold card (here is a tutorial for you), and I absolutely love how it turned out. For the CS, I used Basic Black, Whisper White and Pink Passion
I had in my scrap stash the black and white striped polka dots that I used on the inside of the card.The plaid and pink/black flowered paper are from the Rock Star and All Dressed Up DCWV mat stacks. I colored in the Heart in the card using 2 shades of Le Plume markers, then painting over it with Bubble Gum Shimmerz.
I used a bunch of prima flowers in 3 shades of pink and a great Polka Dot heart from Making Memories Acrylic Valentine pack. Adding some cute buttons I found at Ben Franklins the finish the flowers off. I just needed to use a few new stamps that I purchased. One of them Being Cuppa Love by I think Stamp Barn, and the other a sweet heart scroll that I just love. This to date is my absolute favorite creation, and I hope you love it too.

Hope you enjoyed this post. I've got one more coming up
Thanks for stopping by. Leave a comment for me and
Happy Crafting
