Tickled Pink Challenge

Morning, all! Huzza! It's nearly the weekend and I think the sun is trying to shine! Put it this way: it's not raining and there are a few blue splodges in the sky. Spring is on its way!!

Ok, that's enough waffle.

Here is one of the quirky Lil' Lolita Fashionettes: This is 80s Sookie. Isn't she fun? The hair! The leg-warmers! The cycle shorts! The ra-ra skirt! She always makes me smile.

I'm entering this card for Tickled Pink Challenge who want a TAG of some kind. The sketch is once again from this weeke's Sketch Saturday

The card is tag-shaped: I wanted to use a luggage tag for the layer behind Sookie, but it's the wrong size and Sookie looked as though she was banging her head against the string tie as she was dancing! Very uncomfortable, don't you think??

Papers are Basic Grey 'Sugar Rush' which is one of the many paper pads I have in my stash which I stroke and pet and don't use because they're too beautiful. I am DETERMINED to use them up! Dtermined, I say!

Anyway, all the edges were stickled. The shape behind Sookie is cut with a Nestie (Labels Ten) which has been distressed and then a flourish stamped on it, both in Scattered Straw. The gems were a RAK from my daughter, who just happened to be in Paperchase - she has a weaknes for pretty stationery.

Ok, I think I might hang the washing outside! It's all thrills chez the Manor, you know!

Thanks for looking!

luv, Mags x

Promarkers: Pastel Pink, Dusky Pink, Putty (slightly darker than usual because Sookie has an 80s tan); Vanilla, Buttercuo, Lime Green, Lime Zest; Powder Blue, Denim Blue; Poppy, Crimson; Warm Grey 2 and 4
