Whimsy Challenge - Pretty in Pink

Howdy -

Pretty in Pink - Love that theme for a "challenge". This week that is the challenge at Whimsy. And with the new digitals available this month at the Whimsy Store there are LOTS of digital images that can work perfectly with a pink color theme.

Me I went with LiaStampz - Lily - Don't know why this one jumped out at me. I just love her. She has personality doesn't she?

I totally love working with pink and brown. May be out of style right now - but I still love it. I colored up Lily with my Copics - and don't hate me but I totally forgot to take the photo of the colors. Was running a bit late and slipped my mind completely. I cut her out with the oval Nestie, then inked the edges with Distress Ink "Tea Dye" - was still sitting on my desk from my last card and seemed to work here too - I found some old papers from Glitz that I thought matched up to Lily cut a few layers and added them to a Kraft card stock base. I cut out a Whimsy Double Scallop Border die from the same kraft card stock and ran a piece of pink ribbon through the openings. I then dotted the holes with Viva Decor Pearl Pen.

Digging in my flower stash drawer I found some hot pink tiny roses that match the pattern papers, so I punched out a few Martha Stewart Leaves and added them. For my sentiment I started to use one of the bonus sentiments that come with Lily - but then I saw the Coco Chanel quote and loved it.  It too is from Whimsy -

Here is a closer shot of Lily and the quote -

How about joining us at the Whimsy Inspirations Challenge - it is pink!!

Alrighty I am off now - Dr. appointment, a few errands and then home to get some work done. Sigh I need a vacation -

Have a great day !
HUGS and

Beautiful card. The image is nice and your colouring is wonderful. The colour combination is good and the papers are pretty.
