The challenge this week is a color challenge: HIMCR #109 - Color challenge: Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler, and Marine Mist!
You can see this weeks giveaway and read about my problems getting this card finished HERE. Long story short, I really wanted to use this elephant and it took me a lot of wasted time and eventually pulling out my old Cricut to get it!
Here's what I came up with, finally:
I got this cute paper from one of the HIMCR sponsors: Pumpkin Spice!
It's Bo Bunny Detour Collection and super cute!
The sentiment bubble was cut at 1 1/4" from Artiste Cartridge.
The Elephant that I HAD to have for this card is from Animal Kingdom Cartridge and was cut at 3 1/4".
The reason I was so determined to cut out this elephant is because I have the Peachy Keens stamps that coordinate with Animal Kingdom; however, the elephant face stamp doesn't go over the cut out eyes and to cut in just black out mode is doesn't have any dimension what so ever. Not happy with that stamp!
