Elephant Riddle & Pink Flamingo

RIDDLE ANSWER: See if he brought his trunk.

I used another improved Sew Many Cards image - Eris. I used Stacey's Curtain Color Call #33 of Celery Green, Navy Blue, Sky Blue and White and Paper Craft Planet's sketch for the week. Since I have a riddle, I think that qualifies this card for the Child's Play challenge at Crafty Creations.


I like Stacey's color combo #32 from last week (but then it disappeared when my computer re-booted and for some strange reason I was unable to find it again) so here's a card with that color combo too. My mother-in-law has a friend that likes flamingos so I'll let her give this card to her.
I used a Dustin Pike freebie image. I used an red/pink printed paper that I don't know the name of the pack it came from (I remember I bought it at Walmart but that's all I know about it), then chose an apricot colored cardstock to run thru my Cuttlebug with a Quickcutz floral folder. I colored the raised flowers with a golden-yellow and then a pink ink pad. I used a scrap of yellow ric rac that I have no idea where it came from (I think it might have been in my sewing stash but not sure where it came from...garage sale, what-cha-got-box, given by friends or family, some other??). The pink ribbon came from Target's dollar bin. I typed up the Happy Birthday sentiment with MS Word.

Challenges for this card:
Crafts & Me: Friends and Family
The Creative Cottage Challenge: Pink
Creative Belli: Old & Forgotten (yellow ricrac)
