Pink Elephant Challenge

Happy Valentine's Day. I have been without electricity for almost 3 days. We had some really bad thunderstorms on Tuesday, and the power came back on last night. My little boy, Cameron, loves the Backyardigans on Nick Jr. This is his Valentine's Day present. It's a giant Pablo cuddle pillow. He just loves it.

This is the Pink Elephant's first card challenge and it is my first color challenge. For this card I used plain white card stock as a base. I cut out the center leaving a 1/2" boarder all the way around. I then used my Autumn Leaves Stamps on the outside boarder with pink ink. The center of the card I made using Lori's weaving technique. I the black and white paper I used is form Me and My Big Ideas and The Paper Company. The pink and White polka dot bow is made from Offray Ribbon. I added a Miss Elizabeth's birthday sticker and the pink flower is a scrap from another project.


  1. What a great card. It is so bright and cheery!! Love the weaving. I have yet to try Lori's technique. I must do that soon.
    Thanks so much for entering our 1st TPE challenge. We hope to see you back again next week.
    PS...I hope your power is all fixed and will stay on for good now!

  2. Hey Lisa!! How Fun!! What a great card!! I am so honored that you tried the weave and so HAPPY you decided to join us at TPE!!

    The winds went through here too, but we only lost power for a very short period of time compared to you all. Glad to hear you got yours back!!!

    Happy Valentine's Day!!

    HUGS & Blessings,

  3. Love your weaving - I had a go at that too after Lori's tutorial. It's great fun.
    Glad you got your power back - oh I get so fed up when we only loose ours for a short time I really feel for you.

    Thank you for joining our first challenge at the Pink Elephant. Hope you'll be able to play again in the future.

  4. Cameron matches his pillow!!! That is so cute. I love the card. I can tell you are getting into your groove, ( do people say that anymore???) Well, anyway, you are doing a great job.

  5. This is such a cheerful, fun card! I love the patterns & that lovely flower!

  6. Beautiful card Lisa, you know how I adore the colors pink and black! It's so pretty! And I can see Cameron loved Pablo, did you dress Cameron to match him for that picture?:)

  7. Lisa for some reason it won't let me leave a comment on your card for the challenge this week. Strange !!

    Anyway I love your glitter and sparkle card. Thank you so much for joining us again this week. You are a star.
