Three 4x4 cards today---I am stuck on making these little things!  I am still trying to make some samples with my new sets for my club girls.  I'm gettin' there!

The first one qualifies for the Pink Elephant Challenge, thanks to a new bloggin' friend, Maria!  Their challenge is to use pink, black & white:











This uses Darling Dots and Sweet Always DP, Regal Rose ink.  Can ya see all the glitter on the "flower"?

The next one again uses Darling Dots and some textured In Color cardstock:


DSCF3154 I had so much fun with this card!  Piercing on textured cardstock really adds dimension and makes your embellishments pop!  I used a round Nestie as a pattern and just punched around the circle!


And finally, a sad little boring card using Trendy Trees.....this is the Eeyore of all cards----I am not even sure if I want to send it to anyone, it is rather depressing:


You know how you have an idea in your head of how something should look when you're finished?  Yeah, this isn't it!  Paper is Confetti Cream & Always Artichoke along with Candy Lane DP.

Well, I have to work today, so no recipes!  Be sure to check out tomorrow's post for the Color Throwdown!

They're all adorable, LeAnne! Love the glitter on the first one, love the offset circles on the second, and love that tree on the third!

Wonderful, wonderful cards!
LeAnne, thank you so much for your generous comment which you left on my Blog.
Sadly my finger slipped and your comment was rejected. I'm SO SORRY. As I don't know how to reverse this action, could you possibly leave me another comment? I would be really grateful!
I'll certainly be back to see your wonderful work again!

My favourite is the first one - I'm having a pink week I think! I also love the flower effect on that one and the glitter - really cool. The others are good too though.

Thanks for joining the Challenge at the Pink Elephant this week. It's great to see your work and hopefully we'll see more in of it in future challenges.

I have always had a place in my heart for Eeyore. I am giggling at your description of your card.
Way to go LeAnne
