The Pink Elephant Challenge #25

Hey everyone!!! Welcome back for another fun challenge at The Pink Elephant!

This week, we are doing a sketch challenge:

And we are sponsored by Joanna Sheen!!! She generously sent the dt stamps to use and she is giving the random winner of this challenge a gift certificate! How cool is that?!?!
I am also excited about this challenge because my oldest daughter, Shelby, is the guest designer this week!! She loved the one stamp I got from Joanna Sheen and asked if she could make a card with it. Lori and I thought it might be fun to have her guest design this week. So, if you get a chance, stop by and give her some love ♥. I am so proud of her. She used Prismas & Gamsol for the first time and she had so much fun blending the pencil. I love that she even added a shadow under the giraffe!! So cute!

Now, on to my card. I am not sure if I like this card or not. I love the image, but the colors came out a bit too Eastery looking for me. It is starting to grow on me though.
I colored the bunny with Prismas/Gamsol and then added yellow stickles to the flower centers. The patterned paper I used is DCWV Nana's Kids and I punched flowers from the same paper and added Stickles to the centers. Just a simple card, but those Messy Bunnies sure are cute!!!! The sentiment is from some rub ons...one of the many things that Wendy and I bought on our shopping sprees!

Be sure to check out what the rest of the dt did for this week's challenge. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have a creatively wonderful week!!!

Personal: Today is my very first day as a full time employee. It is going to take some getting used to, but I sure do love my job now. I feel much more at ease and I really like the people I work with. I will be back Wednesday with a post hopefully (that is my day off this week).
