I decided to play along with the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge this week. I've been following Taylor's blog for quite some time, and I'm glad to have a chance to try out this sketch.
To make my card, I used the set Happy Heart Day, which is on the Last Chance List. I'll be sad to see this set go - I think the elephant and mouse images are just adorable.
I paper-pieced my elephant and colored the flowers using my Aqua Painter and So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie, Riding Hood Red and Kiwi Kiss ink pads. I added just a bit of Crystal Effects to the flowers and heart in the elephant's trunk, for a little added dimension.
I really like the finished card. It's fun to use so many different pieces of designer series paper, which are from the Washington Apple dsp. This is such a fun, happy color combo - sure to brighten someone's day. :)
