Unity Pinterest Winter CHA 2012 Challenge


Good morning! It's Friday, so time for Unity Friends with Flair, but I also made this card for the Unity Pinterest Winter CHA 2012 Challenge (this link will take you to all the info). The picture probably won't be posted on the Pinterest board for another day or so, but here is the LINK to the where it will be posted. On March 15th, the pin with the most votes gets 6 months free Stamp of the Week!!! (So...if you felt inspired to vote - I wouldn't complain at all...) Anyway, here is my card:
I used the Itty Bitty, It's a Party - isn't that one of the cutest elephants ever?!?!?!?!? I paper pieced him on pattern paper, then stacked and stitched a couple of circles together, inking the edges with Tim Holtz distress ink. 
I also put a bit of Diamond Glaze on the hat and stand, and curved the sentiment by stamping it without applying to a clear block - that way it would actually curve! I then put loops of crinkle ribbon all the way around the edges. 
And...just because it is FUN - I put it on an Action Wobble!!! These things totally make a card so much fun! Here is a couple shots of it in action:

All the paper I used is from Basic Grey's Picadilly Collection, and I did lots of machine stitching and inking on the edges.
Finished off with just a bit of bling, using my Jolee's heat set tool.  
Thanks so much for looking! And if you didn't already come over from the Unity Stamp Co. Blog, make sure and check out how to win some free stamps by joining in with Friends with Flair!
