Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge #18 - Sketch Challenge

Hey there, thanks for stopping by today.. and just incase you're wondering what the hell is going on.. I won a GDT place over at Tickled Pink Stamps at the end of last month. SO FREAKIN' EXCITED!! I didn't think I stood a chance, but hey.. I was one of the lucky few picked. So here I am..

My first card as part of this uber talented team.. is for a SKETCH challenge - my FAVE!! Here is the sketch you guys can follow..

Here is my take on the sketch..

I used Lil' Pinkette Pippa, who is available HERE. Isn't she a cutie? Perfect for all sorts of cards with her bunch of flowers and cute pose!! I have coloured her using ProMarkers and fussy cut around her. I've used an oooold paper collection - Dear Lizzy from American Crafts. See, told ya I was serious about using this stuff up. If I carry on hoarding stuff I'll never have room for new stash, right!?

The butterflies are made using a MS punch, the 'My Sunshine' flair is from the same AC collection and the green grosgrain along the bottom is from The Ribbon Girl. I have stitched all of the layers using my trusty little Janome! :)

A pretty simple card this time round for me - but I wanted all the focus to be on Pippa the c-yootie!!

I would like to enter this card into these challenges:

× Divas by Design - Anything Goes
× My Mum's Craft Shop - #4 Cute and Girly
