The Pink Elephant Challenge #54

The Pink Elephant Challege is Ribbon and I LOVE to use ribbon.  So this was the perfect challenge to join in with.  Here's my card:
Isn't she just so cute holding the balloon.
This is a standard size card and I've layered with some pattern paper from Basic Grey - Lemonade.  I've added one of the pretty paper lace doilies - seem to be using these in every card lately.
Party Emma has been stamped onto SU watercolour paper and then I've coloured with inks and aqua painter.  I've paper-pieced the balloon with the same pattern paper.
The sentiment is from the Upsy Daisy set by SU, with Kiwi Kiss ink.  I've used the Labels 3 Nestabilities to cut out and embosss.  A pink button has been added and I've placed a half pearl in the centre of the button.
For the ribbon, I've used some wide grosgrain in Bravo Burgandy and tied a bow, adding a yellow button with twine to the centre.
Here's a closer look at the card:
Well, that was super fun and I'm really looking forward to using the other stamps in this set sometime soon.
