Motivet Sketch Challenge and The Pink Elephant Challenge

Hello everyone;
I hope you are all having a great week so far. The sun is shining this morning... but more rain for this afternoon. There is some beautiful weather coming our way from the west coast for the weekend.....Yay!! I can't wait!!

There is a fabulous sketch challenge going on over at the Motivet blog. You have until midnight July 31 to submit your entry and the prize to the winner is your choice of 5 Motivet stamps and another random draw for 2 Motivet stamps. Most of the work is done for you with the amazing sketch....so get on over and give it a go!!

My card today is the sketch for the Motivet challenge and also for The Pink Elephant Challenge which is "Your Favorite Color Combo".
Well let me tell you how hard this was for me because I have so many favorite color combos!! The colors I have used are one of my fav's.....pink, green and orange....love em!!



I stamped the image in black and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I painted it with Tombows. I also added some stickles. The pink border piece was punch with a MS punch. The designer papers are from Darcie's. I also crocheted the flower embellishments for the corner. I was inspired a few weeks ago to pick up a crochet hook after seeing some beautiful flowers and butterflies that Bev had used on her cards. She is such a sweetie to also share her beautiful patterns with us all.

Have a fabulous day...thanks so much for stopping by
