The Pink Elephant Challenge #31

Hello Everyone!! Happy Labor Day to all my US Friends!! It is so nice to have an extra long weekend especially after school started for DS a few weeks ago and we are still adjusting.

Well It's Monday and you all know what that means...another Challenge over at The Pink Elephant!! This week is a color challenge using Black, Red, Yellow & White.

Whenever it comes to color challenges I tend to struggle with them especially when they are colors that I normally don't use or combine with one another. I used Red & yellow as my main colors today. The image is Tilda with Tag by Magnolia. I just love these sweet images. She is colored with Copics and cut out with circle nesties. I used my Zig Zag border punch which is not one that I normally reach for but liked with the layout. All the layers are raised with foam tape for extra depth and I added red pearls and a button for my embellishments.

Make sure to head over to The Pink Elephant to see all the fabulous cards that my fellow design team members have created for this week. We hope that you will be inspired and play along with us!! Have a fabulous Monday!! :D
