Retail Therapy


 
                                                                 A close up:




This adorable little elephant is Ellie from Sparkle N Sprinkle Ellie Retail Therapy, is she not just the cutest?

I paper pieced her with Amuse card stock and dry embossed my main card with a Darice honeycomb embossing folder.   All cardstock and doily by Amuse.  Scallop die cut by Spelllbinders. Glitter by Sparkle N Sprinkle (awesome glitter). Gems from my stash.  My Copic colors ( C00-C3-C5-C7,V01 B02, B05)


 This card went to a dear friend last week who need a bright spot to her week. The inside sentiment was  "Why are you just standing there holding this handmade card?  Jump up and down or something!"

A few fun challenges:
Cut It Up Challenge Blog: Exotic Animals
Glitter N Sparkle #126: Anything Goes
Sketch Saturday: Sketch 350
Sparkle N Sprinkle March Challenge: use loose glitter

This is an adorable little Ellie. SnS has some great images & this one is just so cute. Looks fun to color, and you have dressed little Ellie up so sweetly, with her pretty doily mat and that fab embossed background. We all need a little retail therapy...TFS.
