a card i made for 3 challenges




For this card i used 3 different challenge blogs, i felt i needed a little help deciding what to make for my mums birthday card,
I decided to go from Cute Card Thursday challenge #49 animal magic,
Charisma Cardz challenge #8 animals,
and One Stop Craft Challenges challenge #18 simply stunning, which was to use NO backing papers at all on your card,
I tried for ages to get a decent photo but the lighting was just terrible so the card looks duller than it actually is, i embossed lines onto the card blank for a bit of pattern, and used a mum ribbon i got free from a magazine, the image is from the new daisy and dandelion range i just couldnt resist the gorgeous elephant he is just soo cute i coloured him in with my watercolour pencils, and matted it up with 3d squares. and finally i inked up the sides with lilac ink.

Super cute card Sandra. I love your embossing - it's just enough to lift the card. An adorable image and the inking round the edge finishes it off so well. Thanks for joining the Charisma Cardz Challenge and the One Stop Craft Challenge.
