I love the challenges at Everything but the Kitchen Sink challenge #4. This challenge requires to use a toothpick on the card/page.
I made an umbrella card with toothpick before, I want to make another one with a different twist. So I used a toothpick as the handle of the umbrella and added a few things.... This is what I came up with.
It took me a long time to get the right umbrella for the elephant. She has to travel in STYLE! I used the Stripe Circle and stamped it in criss-cross way. I then run it with CB (Swiss Dot) and highlighted some of the dots in brown! I think this card is great for anyone who needs a little encouragement (like a Mom? or a friend?). Since Lucy's challenge's theme is wings and strings (see here ) I think this card fits the theme too! Yay! Thank you, Lucy, for hosting such a FUN challenge !
Stamps used : Stripe Circle, Modern Line, Elephant Others: twine, ribbons, CB (label 8), embossing powder, TH distress Ink, HA gems, small flower punch (for the rain drops), heart brad
I'm going to bake some more for David's party tomorrow (18 teenagers as of the last count) at my house . I'm also contributing cookies to Stephanie's party in her college....yup, I will be busy! AND we'll have a little celebration for my upcoming birthday. Have a great weekend everyone!
