Tickled Pink Challenge #10 - Black, White Plus One Colour...

...WITH a guest design call!!! I have fallen in love with Tickled Pink Stamps! I was delighted to be the winner of last week's challenge with my Lil Allsorts Pirate Frankie card! I was also picked for a prize on their new release blog hop! If I wasn't already completely hooked, I am now! lol So you can imagine my excitement to see that they were looking to fill a guest designer spot! They have so many creative ladies on their team already, it's a tad intimidating! Plus I've seen the entries thus far, and I'm up against some pretty stiff competition! It may be a long shot with all that {Pink} talent out there, but I had to try!

For my card I chose Lil Birthday Kellita. She is just fabulous and was designed by artist Christina Dee for TPS's 1st birthday! TPS Challenge #10 was to use black and white with one other color. I selected purple since it's my favorite and is also a fave of the card's intended recipient. I have a party to attend in honor of a 21st birthday, and this challenge inspired me to make her card almost 3 weeks early! (Those of you who know me or follow my blog know this is a big deal as I am a die-hard procrastinator! lol) It was hard to keep it to only those three colors, but I managed to with the exception of my image itself. I found the charming ticket sentiment on mudmaven designs' blog. You can download them and her other digital freebies for yourself here. My layout is based on Sketch #145 from Friday Sketchers.

I had a slow start to the week, craft-wise. The small man and I have not been sleeping well due to his cough, but he seems to be on the mend so I hope to get a few more cards made before the weekend arrives. I hope you'll check back! Thanks for stopping by and please let me know you were here with a comment!
