1960's Hippie Willow - TPS Challenge, Lil Lolita Boutique Challenges and Color Throwdown!

Oh wow - this is a loooonnnng post - but it is for three reasons!!

Firstly, let me show you my card.... It features the GORGEOUS Lil Lolita from the Fashionette collection "Hippie Willow" (only available from Tickled Pink Stamps!)



So now, the three reasons!
  1. It is time for challenge # 5 at Lil Lolita Boutique Challenges and this week we are looking for RIBBONS!!
  2. It is also time for the new Tickled Pink StampsMonthly Challenge - and this month we have a great sketch for you created by none other than our fabulous Boss Lady, Kellie.
  3. AND Tickled Pink Stamps are sponsoring the Color Throwdown 100th challenge celebration with the challenge to use REGAL ROSE, BAJA BREEZE, CERTAINLY CELERY AND REAL RED.

So I could have made a separate card for all three of these... but... OMG! I just didn't have time for that... so I combined the three challenges into one.

Now that in itself was a bit of a challenge. The ribbons - no problems there! Easy Peasy - thanks Boss Lady! The sketch - ok, got it. Okey dokey, two down, one to go... the colours?! OMG - what a tricky combination! I struggled with these until.... I found this gorgeous piece of MME paper hiding all the way down the bottom of my drawer - wooo hooo! Problem solved.

The rest, well, Willow is coloured with Copic markers, the giant flower is Heidi Swapp, the peace charm is from Tickled Pink Stamps.

There are some AWESOME prizes up for grabs, so why not enter all three? And at the very least, check out what the DTs have created for you and let them know you've been to visit with a nice comment. There is some awesome talent out there!

And thanks for visiting me too today :)
