The Pink Elephant Challenge #17

Hello everyone;
I am running so behind with my challenges this week, but I finally finished my card for TPE Challenge.
This week is a recipe....3 buttons, 2 layers and a sentiment.
I was in need of a get well card so I have used "Seymore's sick day", "Tail not waggin'" and "dragon prints" from High Hopes.

This card is for a man....so I tried not to do anything too frilly.



I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. The card itself was stamped with Perfect Medium and clear embossing powder as well as the cardstock behind Seymore. I used my nesties for the frames and a CB folder for the green cardstock frame. The dp is from Darcie's. I added some perfect pearls white on all his horns and some glossy accents on the thermometer. The dots on his ice pack were done with a Souffle gelly roll pen.

On the inside I cut an acetate tag and stamped the get well with Stazon black and threaded the ribbon through the slots in the tag. The foot prints were embossed with black and painted with Tombows. I cut them out and layered them. I also sponged the edges with Brilliance coffee bean ink.

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Have a great day...
