The Pink Elephant Challenge #17

Hey Everyone!!
It's Monday and you all know what that means!!'s time for another fun challenge at The Pink Elephant! This week is a recipe challenge. You must use 3 buttons, 2 layers and 1 sentiment.

Here is the card I came up with:

It's my interpretation anyways. I originally only had the green PP and the paper with the stamped image (2 layers beyond the base card). But, the sentiment HAD to go somewhere. lol So, I figured that since the sentiment is on the same 'plane' as the stamped image layer, it was still only 2 layers!! Also, I had zero buttons that worked with this card's colors, so I cut some buttons from the green PP using my Sizzix die. I know that this makes more layers, but pretend they are real buttons!! Now, about this sweet little girl image. Isn't she cute? I got her from I Brake For Stamps. I just knew she would be fun to color in and her gift bag screams to be paper pieced! I am going to paper piece her clothes next time I use her. I colored her with Prismacolor pencils and use the green PP for her gift bag.

Materials: PAPER: WorldWin cardstock, Glitter Matstack (DCWV) STAMPS: Birthday girl (I Brake For Stamps), Sentiment (Inque Boutique) INK: Versafine-Onyx Black (Tsukineko) OTHER: Prismacolor Pencils/Gamsol, Spots and Dots embossing folder (ProvoCraft), Button die (Sizzix)
