The Pink Elephant Challenge #1

Today is the start of a new Challenge blog called The Pink Elephant (Oh no, not another one, I hear you all groan!) but my dear blogging friend Ann is one of the DT for this challenge so I really wanted to join in, and this one is a little bit different to most challenges. Here's what they say:
Hello and Welcome to The Pink Elephant.
We are so excited and look forward to bringing you... fun, fresh and exciting inspiration. Our goal here at The Pink Elephant is to inspire you to use all those fun die-cutting machines and tools the craft world has to offer, to provide you with a place to learn new techniques and styles, try them for yourself, then showcase them weekly by joining our Monday Challenges.

This first challenge is a colour one, using pink, black and white, so here's my card, a valentine (just for a change!!) actually this is the one I plan to send to DH, he'll love it 'cos it looks just like me!!! (well maybe a little bit, once upon a time, many moons ago LOL!)

Card Details:
* Image - Charmed Cards and Crafts download 'Madison - Oh La La!'
* Image coloured with Letraset Pro-markers
* Cuttlebugged backing paper using 'Heart Blocks' and 'Swiss Dots' folders
* Oval scalloped mats - Nestabilities
* Sentiment done on PC
* Gem embellishments from stash

Why not pop over and join in and take the opportunity of having fun with those diecut machines!

What a cute little stamp! Your DH is going to love it! I wonder if that stamp comes in a larger size -- then my DH would recognize it as me --- Haha heehee!

Since I love my Cuttlebug, Nesties, Cricut and all that, I just might join in on the Pink Elephant Challenge. It looks like fun! Thanks for the heads up.

Does that mean you paraded around in suspenders or you were a tall willowy blonde( or both perhaps.) Love this image and the new challenge sounds good. Lovely card.

This looks like an interesting challenge and what a lovely card you've made. I just love my Cuttlebug. I got a Cricut for Christmas which is wonderful, but you can't beat the embossing folders. Have added you on my blogs to visit list, so I can visit regularly.
Love Lynne. X
