Happy Monday Y'all!

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend full of warmth and coziness!

The 2nd week of January is upon us

and so

don your creative caps

and get ready!

This week's challenge at

is a Recipe:

2 Pattern Papers - 1 Border punch/die - 1 Heart

Here is my card:


STAMPS:  Lollipop Ella Digital Image (Lori Boyd Stamps); Sentiment & Heart balloon from Pucker Up Set (Technique Tuesday).
PAPER: White, red and pink cardstock.  Reflecting pool cardstock (Core'dination). DP - Beloved (Fancy Pants).
INK: Black Tuxedo and Lady Bug Red (Memento).  Versamark and red emboss powder on balloon.  Copics on digital image.
EXTRAS: Decorative tag framelit (Sizzix); Doily die (Taylored Expressions); Pinwheel die (Taylored Expressions); Notebook paper border punch (EK Success); red flower button; white ribbon; white string; red gem dots.

Isn't Ella adorable?   By Lori Boyd Designs has some of the cutest digital images out there! And she just happens to be Co-Owner/Co-Founder of The Pink Elephant Challenge too! Talented lady! I always have fun with her images.  My card took a silght detour from it's original plan, mostly in paper.  I had other designs from the "Beloved" pack selected but as many of you know, sometimes what's in the mind stays in the mind and other ideas come out!  LOL  You can't see it very well, but my other pattern paper is the decorative tag (back layer).  The decorative tag is a new purchase as well as the stamp set from Technique Tuesday and the pinwheel type die from Taylored Expressions.  I got lots of new stuff last week that I'm playing around with!  One thing I discover I REALLY need to invest in soon are more Copics pens.  Why do they have to be so darn expensive? Maybe because they are just that good, right?

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
