Simon Says Challenge !

What an amazing response we had to last week's challenge ! It looks as though you enjoy doing cards for the boys as much as I do !!

This week, we have an easy week for you. Our amazing DT member Iris has designed a sketch for you.

A winner will be chosen randomly on May 27th. So hop on into your craft space and get creating!!!! A NEW challenge will be issued on May 27th, so stay tuned!!!! Have fun creating, we can't wait to see what you come up with!!!! Please remember, your submissions for this challenge MUST be a NEW creation that you have made (i.e. it cannot be a card you made in January!) THANKS!!!

Remember, Heidi has graciously donated a $25 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp for the winner of this challenge. Thank you Heidi!!!!!

Here is my take on the sketch and it has the title "Too Pink Elephants" because I did wonder at the time whether it was too pink but I have been assured by the rest of the DT that too much pink is a good thing !!

For the base card I used Bazzill Swiss Dots.

The patterned papers are DCWV Nana's Nursery.

The images and sentiment are from a Simon Says Stamp set of stamps called "Elephant Love" and you can buy them from here. I have mixed and matched the sentiment to say "Big Hugs" and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. I made the backing card to the image myself using glimmer mist and then stamped the image and heat embossed it in white embossing powder. The hearts are from a Kelly Panicci sentiment set and again, I took the heart from the centre of a sentiment.

The flowers were white flowers which I dipped in glimmer mist and they do actually have a more two-tone effect than shows on the photo.

The brads are pearl brads by Papermania.

The ribbon is from Poppycraft which I bought ages ago.

Please have a visit and see the rest of the DT's takes on the sketch, you won't be disappointed, they are stunning.

Don't forget to add your card in the Magnolia "Chasing Butterflies" competition on the Simon Says Stamp Blog and not only will your card be shown in the gallery but you will also be in with a chance to win a $100 spending spree !! You may have to scroll down a couple of threads to find it but it is there and doesn't end until 31st May - Good Luck !

Thank you for stopping by and for any comments you leave. I do love to read them all and appreciate any you leave.
