The Pink Elephant Challenge #18

Hello everyone;
I hope your week is going well, I was busy yesterday looking after my DD new puppy, Jackson. He's so adorable...he's a black lab/german shepard cross. He is helping to teach her the value of not leaving your shoes laying around...something she never learned while living at home...LOL!!



My card today is for The Pink Elephant Challenge. The challenge this week is a color challenge....Pink/ Brown/White. I have chosen "Snow" from The Greeting Farm as my image.



I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. Her earmuffs and the fur on her jacket and boots is done with white liquid applique and the hand warmer is done with white flocking. I embossed the image with my swiss dot cb folder. The border is done with my EK Success border punch. I cut the ovals with my Fiskars fancy edge scissors. The large snowflake is a MS punch and the the sm one is an EK Success punch. They were looking a little plain so I used a paint brush to add some glue and dipped them in some fine diamond dust. I also added diamond dust to the edge of the pink oval and the bottom borders.
I added a couple of gems and lo and behold...no stickles this time!!
I hope you like it...thanks for stopping by.

Have a great day...
KAREN x
