Thanks, chickie!

Good morning!

It's challenge time once again over at the Tickled Pink blog and this week is all about using fabric on your card. You can cover your card with it, create flowers and bows with it, however you can think of getting it on there we want to see it! :)
Now in order to be eligible to win the prize you do have to use one of the many stamps from the Tickled Pink range. These include Lil Lolitas and Lads, Pink Pets and Cherries. Then once you have your card done just link it up over at the TP challenge blog... easy peasy!

For my card I decided to take a torn strip of simple white cotton fabric and make a nice big bow to be a focal point of the design. I also couldn't stay away from the rub-ons once again... luckily these ones went on a whole lot easier than the ones on my card from the other day because I really wanted to use this cool bird and birdcage to play off the 'chickie' sentiment. ;)
I also did a bit of altering by combining Kellita with Valentine Lilith's skirt and legs. There is just something about Kellita that keeps making me want to get her into a skirt, LOL!

For even more fabulous fabric cards just check out what the rest of the challenge team has created... you won't be disappointed!
Oh! And before I forget... Kellie is celebrating reaching 800 followers on the Tickled Pink blog with a big stamp give-away that includes the entire March release! So don't miss out on a chance to win that as well! :)
