Pink Elephant Challenge

This is my card for this week's Pink Elephant Challenge, which was to use turquoise, brown and neutral. I was going to combine this card with this weeks Monday Mojo but got sidetracked ! The sentiment is from a set of Serendipity stamps, which I masked off so that I could stamp the words underneath each other. I stamped it with Stazon Teal Blue along with the background paper which was stamped with a Basic Grey stamp from the Two Scoops set. I sponged some Teal Blue around the edge of the paper as well. The sentiment was cut out with a circle Nestability, sponged around the edge with Distress ink - Vintage Photo and mounted onto a scalloped Nestability. I then cut out three of the Labels One Nestabilities and sponged the Distress Ink around the largest to add some contrast against the background. Added the ribbon and a brad along with some pearls which I've coloured with a blue and a green peel off pen to get the shade I wanted. All of the papers used are Basic Grey.

Not much action in the kitchen tonight but it is Monday and I hate them as much as my other half so he's forgiven ! I think I've just got enough time for another cup of tea before bed.

Thanks for looking.
