The Pink Elephant Challenge #3

Week three of The Pink Elephant Challenges already; I'm still reeling from my win in week 1!

This week we have a sketch to follow and for the second time in a week, I've made a card for a chap! This is a sweet little knight in armour from Sugar Nellie. I think that the world could do with a little more chivalry don't you! He's coloured with Pearly Paints and highlighted with a gel pen.

The paper is Papermania and the embossing is Cuttlebug Divine Swirls. The flourish is Quickutz and other papers are from The Paper Mill shop. I fancy getting a few more flourishes. Any recommendations?


  1. Fab male card Chrissie, beautifully coloured!
    Quickutz do 3 or 4 really nice flourishes, Sizzix do a couple of nice big ones! xx

  2. Wow! This is simply stunning! Just beautiful how you managed the knight's armour to look so real... this is SO cool!!!! And it's a perfect boys card :-)

  3. Hi Chrissie,
    Love this card. I've got that stamp too. I think we've got similar tastes. I'm on the hunt for more flourish dies too.
    Thanks so much for choosing to follow my blog :o)

  4. I too need some flourishes - had to have my friend cut some for me so that I could do the sketch. I'm seriously thinking of investing in a Cricut though so that I can cut them in any size. Bit expensive but so tempting.

    Your card is just wow again Chrissie - always love to see your work. Hope you continue to join in our challenges - we do appreciate it.
