The Pink Elephant..........challenge 7...

Firstly a HUGE Thank You to everyone that joined in, left comments and generally supported the Easter Blog Hop, it was a great success! Do remember to pop back here this evening at 8pm to see if you are the winner of my blog candy :)

Now, onto TPE challenge number seven which is a fab sketch from Robin......
I knew i wanted to use my Cuttlebug to achieve the textured background as required for the sketch, so i used my newest embossing folder 'Argyle'. I had to do a little bit of pattern matching as my card is 5" x 7" but found that this is one folder that works very well and where the overlap occurs is hardly visible!

The image is one of my favourites by Stampendous called 'Agapanthus Cluster' inked with Archival black and coloured this time with my Twinkling H20's............i love the shimmer on them :) These are the other supplies i used........
Cardstock.... Bazzill
Gem brads.... Dovecraft
Sentiment.... HOTP acrylic
Frill.... Creative Imaginations

Looking forward to seeing all your interpretations of Robin's sketch........ ;-D
