Tim Holtz and Tilda are Optimistically Pink

Today I'm using the Tilda stamp which was in the prize I won from the Basic Grey Challenge. She is gorgeous! I've also used 2 more of my new Tim Holtz stamps. Normally I wouldn't think of using Tim's stamps with Tilda but on this card they just seem to work together.

This is my DT card for the OSCC where the amazing Itzuvit has chosen the theme of:

Get Optimistically Pink

As pink is an optimistic colour the brief was to have pink on your creation.

I'm also entering this into the following challenges:

Basic Grey Challenge - Colours: Maroon, Pink and Lemon
Paperplay Challenge - For A Mother
A Spoonfull of Sugar - Distress inks (Tilda is coloured with them, used on the butterflies and the tickets and leaves are stamped in them)
Crafty Catz - Ribbon and a fancy edge (fancy edges - the line of tickets and the nesties)

Items Used:
Papers: Basic Grey
Burgundy Card Stock
Image: Magnolia Berry Tilda
Tim Holtz Tickets and Pine Branch stamps
Woodware Must Have Retro Words (the sentiment)
Distress inks: Antique Linen, Tattered Rose, Aged Mahogany, Frayed Burlap, Black Soot, Worn Lipstick
Charm from Whimsy Stamps
Woodware Butterfly punch
Mark Richards Pearls
Stamping Up! Slot Punch
Ribbon and various flowers from my stash.

Please pop over to see the beautifully optimistic pink creations from the rest of the talented design team and I hope you'll be able to join us this week.

Thanks for looking,

Sharon xx
