The Pink Elephant Challenge

I am very happy and excited to be on the Design Team for The Pink Elephant. This card was made for Challenge #4. Everyone is welcome to come and join in the fun.

The base of this card was made using white cardstock from Papertrey Ink. I layered on top of that using Cranberry Crisp a retired color from SU. I ran it through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder to add texture.
I used a scalloped edge punch for the bottom scallops layering Ripe Avocado by Papertrey Ink, and DP by K& CO. For the next layer I used my Sizzix Top Note Die Cut by SU and cut one from Ripe Avocado and the second one from the K&Co. dp, trimming it down a little so I could layer it. On the Top Note layer I used my Nestabilities Oval Dies layering the scalloped under the regular die.
I stamped this beautiful bird from the SU Always stamp set.
I found this beautiful ribbon the other day and just couldn't pass it up. I tied a large bow under the bird.
For the flower I used a flower button that I purchased on sale at Joann fabrics, under the button I added a flower that I cut using my Cricut and added some leaves I cut using the Martha Stewart leaf punch.
