My Favorite Things - Elephant Congrats

Hello Everyone!

Hope your week is off to a good start.  Here, in Jersey, it feels like the peak of summer with 85-95 degree weather.  It seems as though, as soon as Fall officially hit, Mother Nature decided to throw in a curve ball.

Today, I have a card for you that I created for the My Favorite Things Color Challenge #77.

As soon as I saw this challenge, Baby card popped into my head and I went with it.  I'm featuring a variety of products from My Favorite Things to complete this card.  

I started out by stamping my background with MFT Diagonal Stripes with Lawn Fawn Blue Jay Ink in my MISTI.  

Next, I stamped the images from MFT Adorable Elephant stamp set with some Versafine Onyx Black Ink and heat set it before using my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers to color my images.  While I had all of my inks out, the sentiment Congrats from MFT Welcome, Baby was stamped in Versafine Ink and while the ink was still wet, I poured some Ranger Super Fine Detailed Clear embossing powder on it and heat set it.  

To give the adorable elephant a spot on my card, I'm using the scalloped rectangle from MFT Blueprints Tag Builder #3 and cutting it out of some pink cardstock and creating a mat with some white cardstock and rounding the corners.  Copic markers were used to create some ground for the elephant to be standing on.  

Now its time to assemble all of the pieces onto the card.  I applied some glue tape onto our background piece and adhered it the grey colored card base.  Using the same glue tape, I also attached the mat and scalloped rectangle with some glue tape.  I popped the scalloped rectangle up onto the card using some Scotch Foam tape and also attached the elephant, with his balloon, with some foam tape.  The sentiment was also attached to the card with some foam tape, however, as the sentiment is on vellum, I decided to use some Kool Tak to make it less visible. 

The finishing touches added to the card were some Enamel dots and some Pico Embellisher, which I forgot to shake, so it appears more like glossy accents.

And that completes my card for the MFT Color Challenge.  I hope you guys enjoyed it and I'll be back with another project soon!
