Choose your challenge at TPS

TGIF everybody!

Well, I'm a day late in getting this up here on my blog but there is still plenty of time to participate in this week's challenge
over on the Tickled Pink challenge blog and it is your choice to create something with one or more of the following combos: buttons & twine, lace & pattern paper or chipboard & distressing.

Surprise, surprise... I chose to do the lace and pattern paper combo on my card. ;)
This is actually the first time that I've ever used papers by Graphic 45. While they are totally cool looking, most of the time they just don't jive with my usual style. But when I saw the Christmas Emporium line I knew that they would be perfect with this new Victorian Christmas line of Lil Lolita stamps and had to get it. So I inked up Victorian Christina again and this card came together super quick!

And did you know that Kellie is having a BIG sale in the Tickled Pink Store right now? All Pinkette stamps are 50% off and there are also savings of 25%-65% off Lolitas and Lads, Foxes, Kraftin' Kimmie, SOG and more... so check it out!

Alrighty, back to the challenge! If you would like a chance at winning your choice of 1 rubber or 2 digi stamps then why not play along? Don't forget that your card must feature a Tickled Pink stamp in order to qualify for the prize... these include: Lil Lolitas and Lads, Pinkettes, Pink Pets and Cherries. All of which can be found in the Tickled Pink store.

Good luck!
