Thanks for Everything - The Pink Elephant Challenge

This card was made especially for a wonderful gal that has teamed up with me for special project!  A big shout-out to her for "everything!"  


 It's Monday, and that means it's time for a new challenge at The Pink Elephant, TPE 205!  Lori drew up a fabulous sketch for us to play along with this week!  I love the alternating panels and place for banners:)

I paired up the sketch with The Play Date Cafe Challenge #187: Zesty...a wonderful summer color palette!  The Catered Crop challenge this week calls for die cuts...you know how I have to have a few of those on my card:)


If you missed my Birthday Linky Party announcement, click HERE for the details!  It's going to be a blast!


I inked up a fabulous flower from The Alley Way Stamps called Tropical Hideaway and paired it up with a sentiment from All About YOU!  The flower was stamped on patterned paper, fussy cut, colored with Copic markers and embellished with Stickles.

INK SPLATTER TIP:  I've been trying and trying to get the PERFECT ink splatter with various sprays and mists and just haven't been able to achieve the look I was going for!  BUT, I finally had a revelation!  Instead of spraying the ink, I open the bottle and let the ink drip from the spray pump...LOVE the bold droplets it makes!  


Thanks so much for stopping by the stage!
