The Pink Elephant Birthday Blog Hop

Happy First Birthday to The Pink Elephant!

I am so excited to be part of the Birthday Celebration at The Pink Elephant! I was one of many many crafters who signed up to be part of The Pink Elephant Birthday Blog Hop. We were instructed to look back over The Pink Elephant challenges of the past year and to create a card using our favorite one.





My card features the new High Hopes Luigi image and sentiment, just in time for Valentines Day.


I chose the sketch in Challenge #47 to create my Luigi card. It makes me think of a pizzaria with a checkered tablecloth and Coca-Cola decor.





I'd love for you to leave a comment here on my blog and then head over to Shana's blog to see what she's created for the birthday celebration of The Pink Elephant.


Image and Sentiment: High Hopes Luigi
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Stampin' UP! Basic Gray, and Copic markers
Cardstock: Stampin' UP! Basic Black and Red Riding Hood
Designer Paper: Paper Studio Checkerboard and EK Success Coca-Cola
Embellishment: Stampin' UP! black grosgrain ribbon
