The Pink Elephant Challenge #16

Hello everyone;
I hope you are all having a great week so far. A little rainy and dismal here for the next few days, but great for the new front garden we just put in. I transplanted a ton of perennials from my back gardens and was worried they wouldn't take because of the heat. I think they will be ok now.

It's been fun playing the different challenges and last week my card was chosen as the winner in The Pink Elephant Challenge #15....yay!! Check out my fab little Ella banner on my side bar, too cute.

This weeks TPE challenge is a fab sketch by Robin Willis. I decided to use one of my new stamps from The Greeting Farm, adorable Grace.

I embossed the image with black and painted it with Tombows. I used my Inkssentials white pen for the highlights and the dots. The dp is from DCWV paper stack. I used a CB embossing folder and the trim on the dp is a sticker border and I colored it orange with my Identa-pen permanent marker. I put a dot of frosted lace stickles in each circle of the border and some stickles on the image. I stamped the sentiment onto the ribbon with Stazon black.

I hope you like it...and Thanks for stopping by
