Pretty in pink

Hello, hello!

Can you believe it's already time for a brand new Lil Lolita challenge over at the LLB blog? This week is a cool photo inspiration of some pretty rockin' heels (way too fab looking for me to pull off, LOL)! Still, that didn't mean that I couldn't admire them from afar and use their funky beauty to pull together this card. :)

I've been going through a lot of my papers lately and luckily I came across this forgotten gem just in time for the challenge. I've had it for years and as soon as I saw it I knew it was about to fulfill it's paper destiny and finally get put to use... oh how I love that! Lilith seemed to agree with the paper choice because she insisted that it was her turn to get all pink and pretty. I did alter her slightly just by wiping away the skull from her hair, the rose from her hands and the down turned corner of her mouth. Then I drew in the missing lines and gave her a slight smile with my trusty Copic multiliner pen... easy peasy!

So have you gotten your own Lil Lolitas yet? If so we would love to have you play along this week! Kellie always has great prizes for the winner and the top three get a cool badge for their blog sidebar. :)
