Over The Moon Monday - Pick 3 Challenge

Good morning! I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter. We had Easter dinner with my daughter and her family, and really enjoyed it.

It's time for another Monday challenge. I had so much fun with the Pick 3 challenge from last week, that I decided to do it again. You will have 6 items to choose from, and you must choose 3 items for your project. I hope you share your creation with a link so we can see what you came up with.

Choose 3 of these items for your project:

  • alcohol inks

  • ribbon

  • the color red

  • brads

  • embossing

  • glitter

For my card, I chose alcohol inks, ribbon and the color red. The elephant background was made using mushroom and slate alcohol inks. Then I stamped the elephant (trunkcycle) and colored him with gray markers. I used a white gel pen for his tusks and eyes, and a gold pen for his crown. I colored the tricycle with a red marker. I used nestability dies to cut out the elephant, the scalloped border, and 2 other layers, then adhered them to a red dotted swiss background.


I stamped the Thinking of You stamp onto red paper and matted it onto white cardstock. I adhered a white ribbon to the dotted swiss background and the sentiment onto that.

I hope you have enjoyed today's challenge and that you will share your creation with us.

Have a great week and get crafty.
