The Pink Elephant Challenge

Hi Girlies, just a quickie this morning, as I have got relatives arriving from Lancashire for my party. Im sat here with a bad head because I went out for a curry with the girls last night and drunk a bit too much wine. This card is for the challenge over at TPE. The stamp is one borrowed from a friend again, I coloured it with watercolour pencils and then stamped all over it with clear embossing ink and clear powder to emboss it. The mesh down the side is actually drywall tape. I work for a company who supply plasterboard products so I can get it by the bucketload. I hope it qualifies for the textured background. Thank you for looking, I wont be posting till next tuesday, so I hope everyone has a lovely weekend whereever they are.
