Magical Monday Recipe Challenge

Oh my, thought I had this scheduled to post Monday morning but when I went to add other challenges, it was nowhere to be found........Guess that will teach me to make my cards early and think I've scheduled them.......lol

The challenge this week at There's Magic In The Air/Paper Cupcakes is a recipe I came up with and sure hope you will play along with us.  You may use any image to your liking but we would sure love to see what magic you work with one of our PCC images. You also get entered into the drawing twice using a PCC image.  There is always a freebie on the challenge blog for you or you can pick one up from the PCC Store.

The recipe this week is:  a minimum of 3 flowers; lace or ribbon; pearls or gems, and 1 die cut.  Can't get much easier than that, and boy, do you have a lot of options.  I love elephants and chose one of Nina's new digi's "Elephant With Heart" and you can get him here along with several other new digi's. My next one is gonna be "From The Heart", another adorable elephant image with cupcake.

Card info:
  • Image - Elephant with Heart and Sentiment by Nina May at TMIA/PCC
  • Colored with Copics
  • DP from stash with the purple being distressed with Grape Distress Ink
  • Heart Scroll is from Mayan Road covered with Xmas Red Stickles
  • Heart is cut and embossed with Spellbinder's products
  • White lace paper heart doily
  • Heart gem is from stash
  • Flowers from WOC, edged with Sticles

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
Do It With Digi's - Valentines
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Anything Goes + Flowers
Crafty Creations Challenge - Poem for Inspiration

I'm so excited.  Only need 1 more follower to reach 100. Will it be you?

Thanks so much for stopping by and I sure hope you'll leave me a comment so I can come visit you soon.
