Challenge time at Tickled Pink!


We've got a new challenge
over on the Tickled Pink challenge blog today and we want to see you create a shabby chic style card.

So shabby chic isn't really a go-to style for me and I may not have hit it 100% on the head. When I think of shabby chic on cards I picture layers of papers, lace, ribbon and textural embellishments. So I did my best within those parameters on another Christmas card. For my main image I chose to "big head" Winter Shopping Ivy, from the latest digi release. She is so cute and expressive and totally fun to color! :)

Now it is time for you to get your shabby chic on, check out the amazing inspiration from the rest of 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!

Hi again. I was on my way back over last night to tell just how pretty she is when my internet decided it had had enough for the day. I got so irritated with it that I shutdown my compter and went to bed. lol.,. I love how you have her coming out of the circle holding her stocking. This is a super sweet card. I really do love your traditional colors and the depth of her hair it awesome. Hugs, Lisa
