The Pink Elephant, Arty Girlz and Stamp Something Challenges

I made this card following The Pink Elephant Challenge sketch, it also qualifies for the Stamp Something Challenge which is to use 3D, and the Arty Girlz Challenge which is to use butterflies :-) ( Thanks Jeanette) :-)
The butterfly stamp is from Magenta, I stamped it onto black card using white ink and embossed with opaque white EP, then coloured it with artquest interference paints. The vellum was stamped with white ink and I used holographic EP. The black card I used for mounting was glimmer misted with denim blue and meadow green.
As you can see I used black/grey coredinations which was cuttlebugged and sanded. The swirly design was cut out on my cricut. The DP is doodlebug.
Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

You're Invited :-)

The theme this week on the Spoonfull Of Sugar Challenge is shaped cards
I've had these cat shaped cards in my drawer for yonks and thought it was a good idea to use one, well it did seem like a good idea at the time !! ha ha. The card and cat face stamp are from Stampendous and the paper or rather her rather fetching ball gown was made using doodlbug designs,with pink glitter and diamonds :-)
I got the idea for the 'Fur Ball' from one of my best friends, Bert Childers, a Texan Vet who was awarded a lifetime achievement award at the SPCA in Dallas for his services to the poor animals, The award ceremony was during the annual 'Fur Ball' Fab name eh !!
This card also qualifies for Our Creative Corner Challenge too which is to use a tag on your card.
Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
