Gettin' sketchy at Tickled Pink

Good morning!

The Tickled Pink Challenge is brand new today! This is our third week with the new challenges and the very first sketch for us to play with and it's a great one. :)
At first I wasn't planning on doing a Valentine's card but in the end it kinda snuck up on me. Ya see, I started off wanting to use Evie with this new Cosmo Cricket paper that has a cool vintagey look to it. I got the card base all put together and colored Evie up so all that was left was to embellish the card and find a sentiment. Hmmmm... that is when my bag of Valentine stickers caught my eye, it wouldn't hurt to at least look... and I wasn't disappointed. In the back of the bag was an old sheet of Karen Foster Vintage Valentine stickers that coordinated beautifully with the papers I chose. Plus there was this tiny little Valentine sticker that was the perfect size for Evie to hold... I was sold! Add to that a bit of ribbon and froof and this one was done. I'm starting to think I should be checking out my sticker bags more often! ;)

We would love to have you join us and there is that great prize Kellie always has up for grabs... just remember that you have to use one of the Tickled Pink range of stamps in order to be eligible to win.
Oh! And be sure to check out the Tickled Pink blog too... we are celebrating reaching 700 followers with a fun giveaway and guest spot opportunity. The winner will get to join the Pink Ladies during February's release previews, fun, fun, fun! :)
