Ellephantastic Cards and Crafts challenge #9 - Pink and Grey


It's Vanja here, again, your hostess this week! I hope you all had a good week and that you're ready for another Ellephantastic challenge. :)
But, before I tell you this weeks theme, I want to remind you that Helen has released a wonderful new range of digital images called - "Keep it in the Family". They are available for purchase in her store - Ellephantastic Cards and Crafts Shop.
The DT used the gorgeous new images for their projects today.

This week the challenge is a colour combination - Pink and Grey. You can make your creations completely pink and grey, or you can use some pink and grey embellies... it's totally up to you, just make sure you have something pink and grey on your creations. :)

This week we are being sponsored again by the lovely Susie from Die Cut Dreams!

This is the prize:

A 9 piece door hanger kit to make 3 complete hangers for the winner to decorate in their own style.
The kit which consists of 3 chipboard hangers and 6 coloured card hangers to cove the chipboard making 3 complete hangers.

Wow, is that fantastic or what! :)

Susie is joining us as a Guest Designer, thank you Susie! Check out her stunning creation, what a fantastic colouring and details.

Susie used Helen's new image - Emily cross legged.

And now our Elle DT's pink and grey creations:

Helen used the image Bride and Groom (Elle & Andi).

Jane also used the image Bride and Groom (Elle & Andi).
