Pink Elephant Challenge #7 (Sketch)

Here's my little number for this weeks TPE Challenge......I had such fun with this one!! It's super easy to work with and it's a win, win sketch!!
I inked up the Cuttlebug folder before I ran it through the machine(I can't think of the actual technique right now, LONG day). Stitched around the edge of the CS and added a little paint to the edges. I layered the panel and spruced it up a little bit by adding a bow.

SUPPLIES/card stock (Stampin' UP) blush blossom, very vanilla and baby blue, ink (SU, pretty in pink), Leafy Branch cuttlebug embossing folder, write's ribbon, PP (K & Company), Chipboard stickers ( K & Company), Pearls (Mark Richards), Rhinestones (K & Company), White craft paint, trim (Trimex, Joanne Fabric)

Here's the sketch (challenge #7).

Well blogger was just one of those days!! Extremely fulfilling....but extremely tiring!! The upside, DD had an honor band function today. The bad side, we had to have her there at 8:45 this morning. The function was in another town so we had to hang out ALL day and wait for her. While waiting. I did have fun shopping at the Outlet mall. I just had two of my younger girls with me. They love to shop. Happily, we got some pretty good deals! :) We ended up being gone ELEVEN hours!!! Ack!! I'm all out and READY for bed!! LOL!

P.S. By the time you read this post it will be Monday and hopefully I'll be rested up by then!!

GORGEOUS card Lori. I love the way you've inked your embossing folder, I've never done that either, what a great idea. Love the way you've painted the edges. What type of paint do you use?? Hugs, Ruby x

This is so pretty. I love what you did with the folder. Such soft colors. Really nice card Lori...I miss all those band days. I never ever thought I would say that. They go so quickly.
