Mum Card for Pink Elephant and Colour Create


I used a word topper from the Cutting Cafe for this one, I cut the MUM word out and popped it on with dimensional foam, adding a shadow in the pink. The black mesh is leftover screen netting from when we got our 'bug cage' put on our lanai, and you will recognise the flowers, they are recycled from my blog header. The black bobble trim was left over from a halloween project.
So Pink Elephant ask for a Mum card/and or recycled stuff. Colour create specify a combo of black, white and pink, preferably with polka dots. So I am dead chuffed I managed to combine ALL the elements for two challenges into a single little card.

What a beautiful card!! How great to use all three elements and to use recycled elements. I am starting to get great ideas for cards and hopefully in a short time I will be able to creat such beautiful work.

Just catching up on your blog. Love this one and the flowers are so different. Are they ones you made, they look like they could be done with holly leaf shapes.
