CAS Challenge

My friend and fellow PMS DT member, Kim, plays in these CAS (clean and simple) challenges on SCS all the time and I thought I'd give it a go this week. I have a hard time with keeping things simple, so it definitely was a challenge for me! This CAS challenge involved paper piecing, which I LOVE to do, so I paper pieced this entire elephant from PMS called Enamored Elephant. I thought a pink elephant was appropriate! The dp is SU's Sweet Always and I colored his ears with R32 copic marker and his toes, paws and other shading was done with the W-copic markers. I layered him on an oval scalloped nestie which was sponged pretty in pink ink while still in the die. The same was done for the sentiment (this elephant and sentiment are a set, btw!). I ran the pretty in pink panel through the heart folder and added the white satin ribbon. I was going to make a bow, but decided that would be too much for a CAS card, so I just wrapped the panel in the ribbon. Simple card...only 15 minutes to put together!
Thanks for looking today and if you haven't seen the Weiman Wranglers charity digi set offerred up by Pink Cat Studio, please go to this post. It's being sold for a great cause, and almost $1,300 has been raised so far for the Make a Wish foundation! This stamping community is so awesome! Please stop by again real soon!
