Pink Ink Sketch Challenges - our 1st Challenge blog hop!!!





Wooohooo!!! At last it is time for our very first challenge at Pink Ink Sketch Challenges and to kick off our challenge blog we are having a blog hop!! We have five amazing prizes from our lovely sponsors too!! We have prizes from: Tickled Pink, Whiff of Joy, Whimsy Stamps, Love to Stamp and Graphicat Designs. If you're hopping along you should have arrived here from Erica's blog, if not you might want to start at the beginning at the Pink Ink Sketch Challenge blog to join in the fun! To be in with a chance of winning you need to comment on all the team's cards and enter our very first sketch challenge! I'm so excited about this as I have the great honour of providing the first sketch too!!! Hope you enjoy using it! Onto my card. I have used some gorgeous papers by Girls Paperie - Kitsch - available from The Hobby House.

I decided I wanted a shabby look and just had to use my gorgeous older style Tilda - isn't she just gorgeous!?!? I've coloured her with copics and added some stickles to her wings.



I added a selection of flowers from my stash. The blue tulip and pink lily are by Magnolia, the gorgeous chiffon flower is by Prima and then I have created a red rose with a sizzix 3D flower die (after much dismay that I didn't have a red rose in my stash LOL - remembered my die!!). I have cut the leaves from kraft cardstock with a Magnolia doohickey die.

The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy stamped with stazon onto a cute little canvas tag and the ribbon and button are from my stash.


I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us for our first challenge at Pink Ink Sketch Challenge!! Now it is time to hop on over to my teamie, Jeanette to see what gorgeous inspiration she has in store for you! Thanks for looking! x
