Tickled Pink Stamps Challenge #24 - Sketch Challenge + A PINKETTE

Hey friends, it's time for another challenge over at Tickled Pink Stamps today - can you believe it?! I'm super excited about this card - because I've used one of the new Pinkettes - incase you haven't met her before, let me introduce you to Coraline!! Gaahhhh!! Isn't she the sweetest?!

This week we want to see you following this sketch..

.. using a PINKETTE!! I'm SUPER excited to see what you Pink fans come up with!! I just know this is going to be a fab challenge. Incorporating two of my favourite things.. a sketch and a pinkette!!

As always I started out with a Kraft cardbase and I have used papers from Sassafras Indie Girl collection. I thought the colours were perfect for Coraline! I have coloured her using PM's and fussy cut her out. Do you see a recurring theme here?! I'm stuck in a rut with cards! LOL. But I LOVE it! I digress..

I have used a stamp from October Afternoon for my sentiment and layered it on some pinking circles cut with my nesties. They might be my new faves. But then I say that about all nesties - they lend themselves so well to all sorts of things - especially card bases. I digress.. again..

I have used a bunch of embellishments from seam binding and jute twine from The Ribbon Girl to flowers from WOC and my own handmade clay doodads.

I would like to enter this card into these challenges:
× Crafting for all seasons - Summer
× The Paper Shelter - Punches and Dies
× Bearly Mine Crafts - Anything Goes

× Scrap-Creations - Anything Goes

Be sure to stop by the TPS Challenge Blog to check out what the other fab Pink ladies have come up with!

Note: I attempted to start some crochet today, with the help of my Mam. It went.. okay.. ish. Considering I'm left hand and I'm trying to do it with my right hand so I can follow my book and tutorials on YouTube easier I think I'm doing quite well. I only want to make crochet flowers! LOL.

xo Lou.
