"The Pink Elephant" Challenge # 12

The challenge this week on "The Pink Elephant" is a fabulous sketch from my lovely Funky Hand Teamie Carol....so I just had to have a go......and it was so good to get back into the cubbyhole after 2 days of gardening and kitchen cleaning.....domestic goddess I am not......
Papers: MME...Bella...Bella...Collection
Image was cut from one of the papers
Flowers: Prima...edges inked with
TH Distress Ink...Aged Mahogany
Spacers and Pearls: Hobby House
Sentiment: Papermania Cardstock Stickers
I need a card for a very special lady in my life....and I think this one may fit the bill although don't know if I am happy with the black sentiment and yes.... I just had to use my new goodies...loving these spacers. Well off to get togged up for our walk to the forest....who knows what the weather is going to do today.......very overcast and windy....and looks like rain.....so I am not taking any chances.....waterproofs and boots required.......and then back to the cubbyhole for another dose of crafting...the best medicine in the world.......catch up with you all later......Hugs Kath xxxxxxx

  5. Beautiful card Kath.Love how you've used the paper for the image,and those papers are gorgeous.Love the flowers with the spacers in.I bought some from Ebay but I think they were a bit on the small side as I can't put a brad through them.
