Tickled Pink monthly sketch challenge

Hey there!

So are you ready for a brand new monthly sketch challenge from Tickled Pink? It's a cool circle shaped sketch that is sure to get you thinking outside of the usual rectangular 'box', LOL! I admit that I loved this one so much that I also used it for my Bling It challenge card a few days ago too (just flipped the sketch upside down for that one). ;)
Today I'm using the sketch "as is" but once again I had fun playing with the digi versions of these Lil Lolitas. I mirror flipped, cropped and blew up Lil Kellita so that she wasn't just bigger but also so she was facing the direction I wanted her to be looking in. If you haven't taken advantage of the Lil Lolita digi sale yet there are only seven more hours to get some! And did you hear that this special edition Kellita is available for purchase right now too... who knows when and if she will be making it into rubber?!

But I digress, back to the challenge. You don't have to use a Lil Lolita to play along in this one, just so long as your card features any of the many stamps that Kellie carries in the Tickled Pink store you will be eligible to win a $50 gift voucher from the Tickled Pink store! I can't wait to see all of the different takes on this one! :)

Hope your day is fabulous!
