Tickled Pink Stamps DT - sponsoring Sketchy Colors challenge

Woohoo!! After a bit of a mojo crisis the past couple of weeks I actually LOVE my card today!!! :). Tickled Pink Stamps is sponsoring Sketchy Colors throughout April and some of the Pink Ladies decided to play along :). The challenge is a gorgeous colour combination of blue, beige and white - scrummy!! I used some paper from Prima's Botanical paper pad - so gorgeous - along with some kraft cardstock. All the papers have been distressed and inked with walnut stain distress ink.

I coloured up the gorgeous 30's Lylah - think she has to be my favourite Tickled Pink stamp - just love her coat and hat! I've coloured her with copics and added some lace down the side of the image from my stash. The stamp is torn from one of the backing papers and inked with antique linen distress ink. The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch and the tiny flower is from my stash.

I added a selection of blooms from my stash - they're possibly all from Wild Orchid Crafts but I'm not entirely sure as some of them were gifts from lovely friends. The leaves were a gift too. I added a double bow with some white chiffon ribbon and a couple of pins from Whiff of Joy.

I used Magnolia's lace doohickey die to create the lacey border from kraft cardstock and the large butterfly was punched with a Martha Stewart punch.

Hope you like it and thanks for looking! Enjoy your Easter Sunday! x
