The Pink Elephant Challenge #30

(1 Ribbon, 2 Squares, & Something that Sparkles)

Happy Monday Everyone!! It is time for another fabulous challenge over at TPE!! This week we are doing a Recipe Challenge From Ella's Kitchen. The ingredients are 1 Ribbon, 2 Squares, & Something that Sparkles.

I wanted to try something a little different so I started off with doing a long card instead of the normal A2. The card Measures 7 1/8" x 3 1/2". I used my large butterfly punch and added rhinestones for my sparkle requirement then nested it on top of two layered squares. I used Ric Rac for my ribbon and attached it with staples. I have never done that before and it was a lot of fun and I really liked the look. I added a few pearls and punches to balance out the card.

Now you will want to head over to TPE to check out some more fabulous cards by the design team, HERE. Hope that you will be inspired and play along with us!! Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulous day!! :D
