Pink Elephant Challenge

Pink Elephant have a great sketch by Carol for us to follow this week.
I have just received some gorgeous Eline Pellinkov stamped images from the fabulous Larissa, who make the most fantastic cards, she had a style of her own, simple, elgant, stunning - pay her a visit and see for yourselves. I have always loved Eline Pellinkov babies and cats but never realized she did stamps. I felt the sketch at Pink Elephant was perfect for one of these images.



I have a Christening to attend in a few weeks time and decide to make a card for this purpose. I found some pink gingham vellum in my stash and decided to use grey as a second colour. I cut the strips with a corner/border cutter, punched holes with my cropodile and threaded ribbon through them. I frayed the ends of a piece of white ribbon and threaded that through a large pink brad and used this as the center of the flower.

I kept the inside fairly simple - I wasn't too happy with one image I coloured so rather than throw (too precious) it I cut the piece I was happy with and used it on the inside.


Materials
BC - white linen : Paper - pink gingham from stash : Image - Eline Pellinkov from Larissa : Medium Copics : Woodware corner/border punch : Sentiment - Inkadinkado : Rest from stash
