The Pink Elephant #8


Wow! I can't believe I got a challenge done the same day it was posted! Sometimes I am just too good!! The Pink Elephant's challenge this week was a theme....create an Easter Card. I used this cute Riley image that I received in a recent swap. I spent yesterday coloring in a bunch of images, so this one was ready to go when I got home from work. I colored with prisma pencils and mineral spirits and the background was embossed with my cuttlebug. I was going to add some aqua colored brads, but I thought it just looked so simple and I didn't want to muddy up the card.

The colours on this are just gorgeous - so cool and simple and well just lovely. Love that image. Well done on getting a card in on the first day - I know how you feel on that I usually sneak my cards for challenges at the very last minute.
