 **I have 3 posts going live today, please scroll down to find my LaLaLand and Tickled Pink posts**

Happy Friday! Today we are launching our first Pink Ink Sketch Challenge and we are doing it in style with a blog hop and multiple prizes! I am really excited about our new challenge. I am so a sketch person. It is the thing that starts off my creative process and I hope that you all will have fun playing along in our challenges!

We have 5 amazing sponsors for this our first challenge: Whiff of Joy stamps, Tickled Pink Stamps, Whimsy Stamps, Love to Stamp and Graphicat Designs! Wow! Talk about starting off with a bang!

For your chance to win you will need to enter the sketch challenge and also leave a comment on all of our blogs on the hop!

If you haven’t come here from the lovely Jane’s blog, then you’ll to go there first to start the hop!

Jane started us off with an amazing sketch and I just had to use this amazing Dancing Willow stamp from Whiff of Joy! She embodies exactly how I feel today and I HAD to make an all pink card too!

TP 2011 - Page 191

Willow was colored using Copic Sketch Markers. I added stickles to her pearls for a little bling and also went over her ribbon, purse and shoes with Coral Berry Twinkling H20s. I cut her out with an oval Spellbinders die and then masked her off. I then used Spun Sugar Distress ink to stamp a Heroes Arts stamp over on top and then lightly sponged the edges with the same ink. I used the same ink and background stamp to create my sentiment. The “celebrate” sentiment, stamp frame and the fancy shape die I used to cut it out are also from Whiff of Joy. I also used the Dancing Hearts border die to create a fancy edge around my mats. I used both the positive and the negative shape that it cut.

TP 2011 - Page 193

The flowers were made with felt and a die, both from MFT stamps. The little leaves were made with a Martha Stewart punch. I didn’t have the right tone of pink ribbon so I took some white ribbon binding and colored it with the darkest pink Copic marker that I had used when I was coloring Willow’s dress. I love how it exactly matches the ribbon on her dress now! The papers, believe it or not, are all little scraps from different companies but they look really pretty together! I also attached 2 pearl brads from WoJ to the left side of the card. It looked like it needed a little extra something. Okay, one more view! LOL!

So, now it is time to hop on over to the next stop on the blog hop which is the fabulous Kathrin!

Enjoy the hop, don’t forget to leave comments on each stop for a chance to win and I really hope that you can play along with us this week! I look forward to seeing your creations!

Hugs Jeanette xxo

Hi Jeanette. I think I have been sitting here for a good 5 minutes now. Your card is just so pretty, and I love how you have added so many details to it. You really can sit and take it in and still find something new that you didn't see before. Truly this is beautiful and I love how you have used the pinks on it. I have all the red copics, but I don't tend to use them as much as I want, because as you know if you mess that color family up there is not going back. lol.... You however surely do not seem to have this problem. :O) Wonderful card! Thanks for sharing and have a great day. Hugs, Lisa G

Kelly Schelske said...
