VSN card (take two)

I had written all this out ready to go and hit 'post' and it gave me a huge error message. *sigh* So here goes take two!

Virtual Stamping night at Splitcoast was a huge success!! I was only able to participate in 10 out of 19 challenges but that' is ok. I still learned a lot and got to do a lot of new things.

I have a lot of cards to post and I will post them daily and eventually will get them all posted. :)

Sketch artist

This challenge was to use a sketch type stamp. I used Year after Year and used the elephant to make a baby card.

I used blush blossom for the card base to make a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card. I cut a piece of green galore a hair smaller to leave a small border of blush blossom. The two pink strips are pixie pink and are about 2" in width. I used See You Around jumbo wheel with versamark ink on them. I punched out two scallops in green galore and cut them in half. I used my white gel pen for the dots around. I stamped the elephant in basic black and watercolored her in with blush blossom, pixie pink and green galore as well as basic gray for the wheels. I framed her in blush blossom and attached the green galore scallops. I popped them up with dimensionals onto the card.
I stamped "I just heard" and "congrats on your big news" in basic black from the Absolutetly Fabulous stamp set.
