The Pink Elephant Challenge #30

WOW! I can't believe that The Pink Elephant has hit challenge #30!! What started out as a fun little challenge blog certainly has come a LONG way!! I am so happy to see how many participants we get each week and that people seem to enjoy our challenges! That's what it is all about...having fun and creating!

This week, our challenge is a recipe: 2 squares, a ribbon and some BLING!
I have sadly misplace my mojo and really bombed on this challenge. It all started with a funky perfume box and it snowballed from there! lol I thought the pattern and colors of this box would be so cool on a card, so I cut two squares and a small rectangle from it. I like the colors and the patterns, but the rest of the card is leaving me a little unhappy. I don't know what it is, but I have been looking at this card for almost a week and just can't fall in love with it. I guess we all have times when we wonder what the heck we were thinking, right?!?!?! Well, this is definitely mine.
But, since I did the challenge, I am sharing it....hope you all don't mind!

Thanks so much for stopping by. Be sure to check out what the rest of the TPE designers created this week!

Robin it's good to know that someone as talented as you sometimes has doubts about their creations - makes us all feel better about the times we agonise over things knowing that they are not quite right somehow but not knowing how to put right.

Your card has style - I do agree there is something amiss somewhere, but it's still a stunner.

I love TPE challenges even if I don't participate every week. I love your design for this week's challenge. How on earth could you doubt your creations. You are such a talented paper artist and all the different design teams, ezines and companies you have been associated with over the years is a testament to your talent. Keep up the great work Robin

Are you kidding me Robin, I think it's fabulous, love the bright colors and the pattern of that box is so cool. Maybe it was the squares throwing you off, I had a little bit of an issue with the 2 squares, had it been three I think I woulda been ok :)
