Welcome to a new Tickled Pink challenge and I promise that it is a good one... it really made me stretch! This week we want to see you embellish your card with items "off of the craft desk" that means to use things not necessarily made to go on a card.
Since I knew I was going to steer clear of my usual go-to embellies like; flowers, ribbon, pearls and gems I decided pretty quickly to make a guy card with one of the new Lil Lads. I went with Eric because I think he is a total cutie and I thought he had the right look for the idea that came to me. I wanted all of my embellishments to look like random bits that Eric pulled out of his pockets and tossed on his desk at the end of the day so I used things like wire, bottle caps, paper clips and an old clothing label tag. Because most of these are on the largish size as far as embellies go I also decided to use the digi version of Eric so that I could blow him up nice and big as well. Plus 'big heads' are just so much fun to color! ;)
If you would like to play along this week for a chance at the awesome prize then don't forget that your card must feature a Tickled Pink stamp. These include Lil Lolitas, Lil Lads, Cherries and Pink Pets which can all be found in the Tickled Pink store. Once you have your card done you'll want to link it up at the TP challenge blog too!
