Tickled Pink Stamps DT - Preview time and our first challenge of 2011!!!

Woohoo!!! It is time for another release at Tickled Pink Stamps and today is the first day of previews!!! Kellie has some stunning images coming out this month! Today we'd like you to meet Cherrie with Tag!!! Isn't she gorgeous!?!?! It is also time for the first Tickled Pink Stamps challenge of 2011 and our theme is "anything goes". I have made a birthday card for my Sister in Law following the Friday Sketchers sketch and the colour challenge of pink, red and white at Colour Create challenge!

I have coloured Cherrie with copics and added a tiny red pearl to the button on her dress. I've sewn all the papers which are from the Winter Garden Tilda paper collection from Panduro Hobby.

I didn't want to cover the gorgeous papers and sketch up too much so had the idea of creating the sentiment tag in acetate using the Tickled Pink Christmas sentiment die. Isn't it a gorgeous shape?? I hope you can see it well enough. I think it wasn't a good idea photography wise but it looks great in real life!! I inked the edges with white stazon and then stickled over it to make the acetate show up better and I have stamped "It's your day" with white stazon from a Whiff of Joy sentiment set.
You can see the sentiment a bit better in this photo I think! I added a selection of flowers from my stash together with some die cut leaves and some punched butterflies.

Hope you like it and thanks for looking! Pop over to the Tickled Pink Stamps blog to see the rest of the DT's amazing cards with Cherrie. Looks like our Christmas break has done wonders for everyone's mojos!! All the cards are stunning! x
