Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday Challenge #17

This is my 2nd post for today. To see my Jacksonbelle Embellishments blog challenge card please scroll down to my previous post.

The Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday challenge is a good one this week. "In with the old"...meaning pull out those old stamps you have sitting on the shelf that you had to buy but have never used. Sadly I have A LOT of stamps that I HAD TO HAVE that have never ever seen ink. For my card I decided to ink up these adorable Peanut the Elephant stamps from Our Craft Lounge. I bought the Peanut sets the first day OCL opened but I have been so busy that I have never inked them up until now. I wish I had used them before now...WOW! These are some of the best quality clear stamps I have ever used. If you haven't been to OCL you should definitely check them out. They have a ton of adorable stamp sets!
I also used the current color challenge from the ladies over at Color Throwdown: Orange, Pink and Turquoise.

Unfortunately, when I had my card 99% done I got a smudge of black ink from my finger on the white cardstock. Don't you hate when that happens.

If you decide to play along with our challenge please use keyword MTTSC17 when you upload to SCS or PCP.
