Magical Monday - A sketch and lots of pink!

Good Monday Morning!

I hope you're all well and that you have a good beginning to a new week! Firstly - huge congrats to TEAM CANADA! on a fantastic hockey game last night to win Olympic Gold! Wow - such exciting stuff!
I'm beginning to feel more like myself and actually enjoyed my time back in my craft room this weekend! Yay - I feel like some normality is coming back! So here we are already at the first Monday of March! My super DT member, Patti Nelson, has a fabulous sketch to start us off on our challenges this month over at There's Magic in the Air with Paper Cupcakes. We can use any acquired image from Paper Cupcakes thus far to participate in this weeks challenge. I used this wonderfully cute elephant with birthday balloons called 'Birthday Wishes'. I've actually made this card for a sweet blogging friend who's just had a gorgeous baby girl - yes Joey, it's on its way to you!!

So this is the sketch to play with and I rotated it to use with the image I chose. I coloured my image with copics and used an oval nesties die cut. I found this gorgeous glittery bright pink paper from a DCWV stack. I used the MS zig-zag border punch. Ribbon, gingham ribbon for a bow and a fabulous bright pink crocheted flower (from Christine - thanks hun!!) with pearl brad finish off the details on the card. I will also enter this card into the Cute Card Thursday challenge this week which is 'Ribbon-tastic'.

I have to say I'm so happy with this bright and cheery card - it really makes me smile when I look at it! It's not often I use such bright colours but it's definitely a feel-good card!

Well, that's all for today! I really hope I can get down to my craft room today as I need to play catch up and now that my mojo is co-operating I want to make the most of it, lol!!! Thank you all for stopping by and paying me a visit - your comments are always hugely appreciated! Have a fantastic day!
