Winter Wonderland

Hey guys (please scroll down for my SOG preview... thanks!)

Well, it Thursday and that means we have a new challenge
over on the Tickled Pink challenge blog. This week we are feeling frosty and want to see some winter inspired cards.

I used the new Lil Victorian Christmas Ivy from the Victorian Christmas line of Lil Lolita stamps because with her fabulous coat, bonnet and fur muff she was ideal for the winter theme. Not only that but I also wanted to do a quick video on how I color up white clothes which you can see here or over on the Color Me Copic blog.

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!
Supply list:
cardstock- Bazzill and Copic X-Press It
paper- We R Memory Keepers (Merry January)
stamps- Tickled Pink (Lil Victorian Christmas Ivy), Inkadinkado (sentiment)
ink- Memento tuxedo black and Colorbox creamy brown
Kaiser Craft pearls
EK Success gold pen

Eeeeek!! I knew I should've watched your video when I saw it on my reader! You see, I do most of my blog reading at night or early in the morning. I try to save the videos for the day so no one wakes up but even then my sons are usually by my side at daytime. If you pls, imagine Mattie looking over my shoulder because he hears a 'voice' coming out of the phone & seeing a moving picture (& usually a cute one at that!). Anyway, my point is she came out so beautifully!! I really love your coloring pleats! Coloring white is just what I needed for my blog post tomorrow- I colored a wedding dress. Your card is gorgeous! Love the color scheme!!
