Hi Everyone!........ Well it seems Lori got a little too excited and posted the challenge for today instead of tomorrow! So..........Challenge 1 is a colour combo Pink ,Black & White in honour of the blog colours and our cute little mascot Ella :)
My first design for The Pink Elephant utilises the Cuttlebug and Cricut for my die cut and embossed elements.
My card base is 148mm square and i have covered that with some black paper from American Crafts 'Elegant' collection. That is topped with a piece of Creative Imaginations die cut paper....just love all the holes in this paper it gives such a fun look!
The focal is created by cutting a heart from George & Basic Shapes at 3 inches and then embossed with my Cuttlebug and the Heart Blocks folder. The Love sentiment was cut at 1.5 inches with Home Accents and the letter U at 1inch with Base camp.
I've also used some Papermania gems and some dotty organza from Offray.....sorry to say i don't know the manufacturer of the kiss hug grosgrain ribbon.
So that means for those of you that love to join in with a challenge, you will have a head start just for this week only!! I hope you have fun playing along with us and will come back each week and show us what you can do!! There is a prize this week from Debbie's die Cuts, so well worth a try, you may be the lucky one :)
Thanks for popping in today.......see you very soon ;-D
