Love is .....A Magical Monday!

Hello everyone!
Thanks for popping by for another Magical Monday with There's Magic in the Air with Paper Cupcakes! Nina has this super cute elephant image 'Tons of Love' as a freebie with todays challenge. Our challenge host is Olga this week and she has requested RBG's - Red Ribbon, Buttons and Glitter (or something that sparkles) to be included on the card.
I coloured this image with my copics and dolled her up and painted her finger and toe nails, lol!! I thought this red polka dot paper was really fun and that gave me the idea to use the buttons as 'balls' and to try and achieve a circus feel to the card. I used red ric-rac for my ribbon and then I punched out some glittery hearts which she's blowing out of her trunk!
Again, a very simple layout but I think there's enough going on with the polka dot paper that I didn't want to overshadow that!
On a personal note I am starting a herbal detox 12 day programme today to try and get rid of excess toxins and 'stuff' from the over-indulgent christmas period! I'm hoping it will be the kick start I need to reaching my goal of losing 30-40lbs before my 40th birthday (this November)!!! I've never done one before so I'm not really too sure what to expect although I've been warned to possibly experience headaches, nausea, fatigue and mild flu-like symptoms. I'm sure it will be worth it in the long run!
Ooops, sorry for the long waffle! Thanks for your visit today - I love having you stop by and I really hope you have the time to pop on over to TMITA and check out my fabulous DT's work and grab the image for yourself and join in!
Hope you all enjoy a great day!
Hugs,
Danielle x
