The Pink Elephant #58

Happy Monday!
I am back to bloggin after a break because of a serious battle with bronchitis. I honestly can't remember the last time I was this sick. I am still not 100%, but am feeling much better (human again lol).

It's time for another fun challenge from The Pink Elephant!
This week, our sponsor is the fabulous....


It is no secret that my favorite stamps are CC Designs. I have to buy every kit that comes out and I just love to stamp these little cuties!! I bought the Spring Kit when it was released (sight unseen because I knew I would love it!). There are gorgeous kids, accessories and sentiments....love it!!!

The challenge this week at TPE is
Spring

My card used Rainy Day Emma....isn't she sweet?!?!
I colored my image with Copics. I added white gel pen accents. It doesn't show in the picture, but I added Glossy Accents to her boots, buttons and pocket and Spica pen to the rest of her coat and umbrella. I cut out a large Labels One and embossed it with Swiss Dots, inked with Antique Linen. The sentiment was stamped and cut on the second smallest Labels One and inked. I used My Mind's Eye paper for the background. 
Then I think I went overboard with embellishing. I am going to blame it on the bronchitis...
I added the flocked brads (that I colored with Copics because they were too pink), the ribbon and bow and the punched flower border (EK Success) from the stripey paper. I added Glossy Accents to the flower border and to random dots on the background to make it rainy. I think it may be too much...but I still love it.

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check out what the other TPE girls did this week!
Have a creatively wonderful week!
