Tickled Pink Stamps Challenges

As soon as I seen the new head for the Sew Easy Tool - Pennant Banner. HELLO!! So, truth is, it ain't all it's cracked up to be. In fact, I found that unless you make the line of pennants perfectly straight, then the triangle of holes ain't even?! WTH? Maybe it was just the way I was using it. But aside from all of that kerfuffle - I conquered it and in the end I created a template of three banners at a slight angle to use on my project for today! :)

Full credit goes to my boyfriend for stitching this tag while I sat and coloured the image. I think he's made a brilliant job, don't you? Don't compliment him too much, his head will explode. Needless to say he was very happy with himself! LOL.

Anyway, I bet you're saying.. WELL WHAT TAG?! Well, MY TAG FOR THE NEW TPS CHALLENGE, of course!!

This week we want to see..

This challenge is only open to TPS images.

I found this really tricky! LOL. I just don't get it. So I went with extremely CAS!! I was gonna add some white roses from WOC, but then I thought hell, why take more attention away from those perfecto banners?! LMAO!!

I have used the gorgeous Lil' Birthday Pinkette Coraline - you know the Pinkettes are my fave, so this new release is just right up my street. A girl's gotta have a stash of Birthday paraphernalia, right?

I would like to enter this card into these challenges:
× Art Impressions Stamps - Make a Tag or Bookmark
× Charizma Cards - In Stitches
× Digi Stamps for Joy - Think Pink
× Stampotique Designers Challenge - Tag Time
