"Black and Gold" at The Pink Elephant....


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

Once again, Happy New Year! from all of us girls over at The Pink Elephant! I am looking forward to sharing more exciting challenges with you on this wonderful DT! Thanks for the past year and here's to a new one ahead!!

This week, Ella has a color combination for y'all to try:

Yep, GOLD and BLACK....I added a bit of white in there also using the Your Next Stamp stamp/die set called "Clink:"

Here is the full card:

I kept this one very CAS to show off this wonderful stamp/die set! The sentiments that come with this set are so awesome ... for many different occasions and celebrations. I colored in the champagne and ribbons with a gold Wink of Stella pen and added some gold gumdrops from YNS and wa-laaa! Done! You will be seeing this set A LOT from me in the weeks to come!

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Less is More - Black/Metallic and One more (white or grey)
Lil Patch of Crafty Friends - Anything Goes
Suzy Bee's - Anything Goes (CAS design)

Please take some time to hop on over to our challenge blog HERE and link up your BLACK/GOLD creation for us! We'd love to have you play along! CHEERS!
