The Pink Elephant #52

Happy Monday!!
This week, I am so very excited about The Pink Elephant Challenge!

The sponsor is Squigglefly and the girls are using my digis!!
The random winner of the challenge will receive two digis from my collection at Squigglefly!!

The theme this week is

All about PINK...in honor of Ella!

One year ago, we started this fun challenge blog hoping a few people would play along and look where we are now! Woah baby!!! Thank you to all of you who have participated at The Pink Elephant over the past year. We couldn't, and we wouldn't want to, do it without all of you!!!

Here are my projects for this challenge:

 
Super simple card. I have decided to do a week of Valentines for a suprise for my dh. This is one of the cards I am going to slip into his lunch box each day. I colored the image with Copics and added it to the card with foam tape. The band was done with a Threading Water punch and the red strip is embossed with a dot border folder...sadly it doesn't show in the picture. This the 'pinkest' card in my series this week. lol

 

Here is a treat that I am going to give him on the Friday before Valentine's day. I cut out the bug, sans the word border. I colored him with Copics and added Stickles to the wings and antennae. The words are glittery foam stickers that I got at Joanns for 10 cents. I embossed the base with tiny bubbles. There IS pink here, so I hope it counts. lol


Finally, this card was a pain in the booty to photograph. It just didn't want to cooperate. I think it is because I did a tiny card on a flat base and couldn't get the light to work with it. The red base is as bright as the ribbon...it just looks alot duller in the pic. I colored the image with Copics. Added it to a small embossed pink card. Added ribbons and a bow. Attached the card to a red base. The white stitching (that looked like bird prints to me) is a rub on. I stamped 'a lifetime of love' (a Studio G stamp) across the bottom. Finally, I added a tiny border of scallops under the pink card to bring more of the blue into it. Not alot of pink at all, but I think it qualifies.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Be sure to stop by TPE to see what the other girls did this week!

Robin, your cards are all so cute! I love the idea of giving a card a day, I may have to steal that idea! Your digis are amazing! I do have a question for ya, what color copic do you outline your images in? It's so subtle, but I love the look.
