Pink Elephant First Challenge


I came across this Blog (Pink Elephant) by chance today, and liked what I saw.
Their inaugural challenge is for a card in pink, black and white. I don't think that I've actually used this combination of colours before, but I must say that with the shade of pearlised pink card I used it certainly seems striking!

The ribbon is recycled, it came from my gift from my son and his wife when they were married last summer.

The paper is a free download from somewhere or other and the flower is from a Sizzix die. The sentiment is Stampin Up, mounted on Nesties.

  3. I like what you have done with your recycled ribbon. I probably would have thought it was too big to use in a card, just shows what I know eh?
