This week at Tickled Pink Stamp Challenges there is a challenging sketch with the bonus theme of Mothers Day.
It was the perfect chance to use one of the Pinkettes. I decided to use Pippa as she is holding flowers so it suited the theme. I also made up my own sentiment, something i have been doing a lot lately. I used to be so thrown off by sentiments and never use them unless it was absolutely needed but lately I feel my card is missing something unless I do.
I was inspired by Kellie's card that she made last week having the decorative (in this case Tilda's lace) edging for the card. I just think it adds a little extra. I wanted to keep this card quite simple as it is in my mind a card that would come from a young one and therefore simple is best. I have added flower soft on the bunch of flowers to give it a bit of lift. (Slight confession I saw the flower soft about 18 months ago now and just had to have it and this would be about the second time i have actually used it, ooops!).
Anyhow I cant wait to see how you all interpret this sketch and see your gorgeous creations. Don't forget to stop by the challenge blog and admire the other DT's cards...
Thanks for stopping by, until next time xoxo
