Pink Elephant Meets Kraftin' Kimmie!





Good morning, stampers!! Wow, what a busy weekend! It's Monday again...time for work! Blech! Well, maybe this will start your week off well!

Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps is sponsoring this week's challenge over at The Pink Elephant blog! The theme this week is Birthday and you should see the fabulous designs that their design team made! Wow! And I'll be posting the Krafty Girls creations over at the KKS Challenge Blog in a bit. Fantastic!

Of course, our new Cindy and Mindy image called Party Time is perfect for this challenge! So I stamped them on Neenah with Memento ink and coloured them in with Copic markers. I coordinated the colours with this fun new Pink Paislee paper. The colours I used are: E00, R20, R22, R29, E50, E53, BG11, BG13, E13, E25, G20, G99 and RV11. After I coloured it, I covered the balloons in crystal lacquer and then sprinkled glitter all over them and set it aside to dry.

The card base is a deep red Bazzill cardstock and the size is 5 1/4 square. I also used Sparkle Bazzill Bling cardstock for layering underneath the patterned paper and used my favourite MS border punch across the bottom. I added some chocolate satin ribbon, tied it in a bow and added a pink button with linen thread. I pop dotted the main layer and the sentiment, which happens to be the bonus sentiment stamp that comes with the Party Time stamp and finally added a couple of green rhinestones in the corner!



I also created this card for the Copics class that I'm teaching over at Scrappin' Great Deals later on this month. The class is almost full, so be sure to give Sheila a call at the store if you want to sign up for one of the last spots!!

Now if you decide to join in this week's Pink Elephant Challenge, you'll be in the rand
