A vintage challenge at TPS


It's Thursday and that means we have a new challenge over on the Tickled Pink challenge blog! This week we want to see you create a vintage inspired card or creation. :)

Being in a decidedly Christmas kind of mind frame with my cards right now, it was a no brainer to pull out one of this year's Lil Victorian Christmas Lolitas for my card. Right away Lylah seemed to lend a very vintage look to it and when it came time to pair her up with some papers, Graphic 45 was at the top of my list for this challenge. In all my paper stash, I don't think I have anything more vintage looking than these Christmas Emporium papers... it's just not a style that I'm big time into. But boy, was I glad to have it for this! ;)
I love how the little decorative panel makes it look like Lylah is part of a Christmas street scene, down town in front of the department store where all the season's toys and gifts are on display. With those bells she may just be collecting money for those less fortunate... awww, what a sweetie she is. :)

Alrighty, so go check out all the amazing inspiration from the design team girls and play along with us this week. There is a free digi of your choice up for grabs and the winner is now selected by random generator! 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 everybody!
