TPE #240 {Birthday Theme}

Welcome back! If you are looking for my Merry Monday post, please scroll down! :)

This week at The Pink Elephant, we are issuing a BIRTHDAY "THEME" CHALLENGE!

Last week, I received my package from Papertrey Ink and OMGOSH...I have been having soooo much fun creating with all my new stamps and dies! I love the big sentiments and flourishes I got - makes the CAS cards much, much easier and stress-free to make! *wink*

I am playing along with The Color Throwdown this week:


I decided to ink up my large flourish from Fancy Flourishes  then added the color with flowers from Happiness in Bloom:

To finish off the card, I stamped the sentiment from Signature Greetings in Tangerine Tango and added a few colored gems and black pearls to the insides of the flowers. Done. 

Be sure to check out the rest of the creations the wonderful Design Team at The Pink Elephant created using this week's birthday theme and be sure to link up your creation so we can come visit you! Happy crafting!!


  1. This is just stunning as always! (The die you wanted to know the name of is from La-La Land Crafts called heart banner) I am thinking I will need to invest in some of your beautiful flourishes!
    Hugs - Tina
