Never Give Up - PDCC #185

Hello friends and welcome to a brand new week of colorful inspiration with The Play Date Cafe!  This week we are sponsored by Great Impressions Stamps and the DT all got to play with a couple of really cute stamps!  Check out these fun colors - Magenta, Teal, and Light Gray - 
I just got the new Crate Paper collection in the mail and it just happened to be full of the perfect colors for the challenge this week!  I layered two of the patterned papers over a gray card base and then stamped a ticket vertically with the "never give up" sentiment.  I layered a chipboard frame onto the card and stamped the "elephant with kite" stamp in the center.  I stamped him again, colored him and the kite with my Copics, and then pieced it over the patterned paper.  I finished the card with a little twine bow.  

Thanks so much for visiting today and don't forget to link up by Tuesday for a chance at a wonderful prize! 

Supplies:  Stamps (Great Impressions), DP/Embellishments - The Pier collection - Great Impressions Stamps, Copic Markers, Ink - Basic Black (SU!), foam squares, Twine (The Twinery)
