Old, New, Borrowed & Blue!

                                      
   I am tickled that my dear friend, Amy Sheffer, agreed to be our guest designer this week at Betty Bee's Buzz.  Amy set the weekly challenge:  something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.

  Have you ever seen an elephant with blinged-up toenails?  That is my new item:  Imaginisce hot rocks.  I borrowed my sketch from Artful Delight.  My old items are the papers and rub-ons:  BasicGrey "Marrakech" 6x6 papers.  I cut the elephant from the Cricut cartridge "Wall Decor and More."  I drew on her eyelashes and embossed the lacy circle and scalloped circle with my "D'Vine Swirls" embossing folder by Provo Craft.

  I was inspired to make an elephant card by HoneyBee Court.  She and I both like elephants!

Here is the sketch:

Happy Wednesday!  Now it's your turn to make a card with something old, new, borrowed, and blue and link it to today's post at Betty Bee's Buzz.
