Magical Monday - Tons of Love!


Welcome to third Magical Monday of 2010 with There's Magic in the Air and Paper Cupcakes!! It's another fabulous Monday with a WONDERFUL image by Nina! This elephant just makes me smile! I thought she was perfect for a free-standing pop-up card (find toot here). Selma did the same design last week and great minds think alike as I'd finished this one before I saw her's! FUNNY! Anyway, Olga's challenge to us this week was RBG'S (i.e., Red ribbon, Buttons, Glitter or something that Sparkles). I think I got all of'em! I love how this one turned out...that red ribbon just calls to me!

+ Realized this afternoon that you couldn't really see Miss Ellie in all her glory as that FAB red bow was blocking her! So here's a close up of just her...


Here's a pic of the card folded...

I made the word "love" show when it's closed so the sentiment makes sense! Also this style of card helps meet my personal challenge of finishing the inside of the card too (not really one, is there?!?)! YEAH! Well, I hope this gives you some inspiration to come and play with us this week at TMITA/PCC. Just look at what you could win!

YUMMY! Can't wait to see what you do with Ellie and RBG'S!!!
Aloha, Kim

What an awesome card! I remember back when I first started making cards I got into making all freestanding pop-up cards, it's so much fun! And you met the challenge I gave you to use up all the red ribbon you have so this challenge is purr-fect! Talk to you later.

Love, SAM aka MOM

Your card is very cute Kim. I love making this style of card and this cute elephant is perfect on one. I love all your red ribbon and the way you attached it to the tag.
