A big ol' Birthday Blog Hop at The Pink Elephant!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ELLA! Today The Pink Elephant challenge blog is celebrating its 1 year birthday by having a big ol' blog hop! And when I say big I mean big! So I'll try keep this short and sweet! If you just came from Michelle you're in the right place! If you just stumbled upon the hop and want to start from the very beginning click here!

I jumped at the chance to participate in this Birthday Blog Hop, especially because The Pink Elephant is one of my favourite challenge blogs! We were supposed to pick one of our favourite challenges from the last year and re-create a card! I chose Challenge #46 - a Sketch! I love a good sketch, especially clean and simple ones like this one.

Here are the details of my card...I appropriately chose this adorable Elephant stamp from Whipper Snapper called Huckabee. I coloured her in with my copics and shaded using some prismacolor pencils. The pink cardstock is all Bazzill, and the cupcake patterned dp is from Doodlebug Designs. The bottom scallop is from my Fiskars border punch and the sentiment is a Kraftin Kimmie Stamp!

This cute lil Elephant even got all dolled up for the party with some pink nail polish (used my glaze pen to make it glossy), added some glitter and a cute little bow on her head! I couldn't resist adding the Fancy Pants crocheted flower with a SU button and flat back pearl in the centre to finish it off! I hope Ella likes it hehe! Well so much for short and sweet, your next stop is Mummylade, thanks for stopping by! If you get lost along the way just go back to the start and the whole list is there! Have fun!
