Firstly I have a little news to share. About a month ago Robin from The Pink Elephant challenge blog emailed me to ask if I would like to join the Pink Elephant design team. In case you don’t know they organise some fun challenges every Monday which everyone is encouraged to join in. Well after a little thought I said I would join in the fun and join the team so you will be seeing me post here everyone Monday with my card for that week’s challenge.
So onto my first challenge …. and boy was it a tough one for me! Yikes! The challenge was a recipe type of challenge and we had to use 3 buttons, 2 layers and 1 sentiment …. tough ha! Most of my cards have layers, layers layers!
Anyway after a little thought I thought I could use my Sizzix “movers & shakers” note card die to create my card for this challenge. I am never sure with recipe challenges whether I am allowed to add other stuff … well I did I added some ribbon, punched the edge of my card and added Riley too! Hopefully I did the challenge right and I won’t be thrown off on my very first card *wink*
Here is another view of my card, I stamped my sentiment onto the window part that I punched from my card when I used my die and then sponged the edges and placed it onto the inside of my card through the window …. that still makes it 2 layers!
Don’t forget to see what everyone else did for this challenge over on The Pink Elephant
