Challenge #52 - "Tickled Pink"

I am so pleased that I had so many to enter my first challenge after the break the the Design Team and I took.  I hope everyone will return for future challenges and help spread the word about my challenges. 

I have made one improvement, I hope, to the challenges and that is I am  posting the upcoming challenges on my sidebar.  This way, you can plan ahead.  However, if you will, please do not enter more than two entries per challenge.  We want to be able to comment on everyone's entry. The main reason I use the random generator is to give everyone a chance no win no matter her/his level of crafting. I hope beginners will win as well as advanced crafters.  The main purpose of the blog is to encourage one another.

The theme for the challenge is "Tickled Pink".  What we would like to see is a lot of pink or something that pleases you so much that you are tickled pink.
My inspirational card for this challenge uses a cute Digi Darlas image of a boy hissing a little girl.  .  I used Copic markers to color the image. This card is a little different in that the sentiment is larger than the image.  The sentiment is fabric.   The border is a diecut from Cheery Lynn Designs. I thought this would make a perfect Valentine card.
For my pink creation I used a lovely Digi Darla angel image and colored her with pencils and a gold gel pen. She is cradled in an oval shape distressed with pink ink and laid on decorative origami paper. The base is pink card stock. I could easily use this as a Valentine by adding a Valentine sentiment but it could also be a non traditional Christmas card. There are such a wide variety of lovely Digi Darla images to work with that whoever wins this prize will have a happy time playing!
I've used a great fun image "Coffee Grandma" for this die cut card. She has been coloured with Copic Markers and cropped using a new set of dies I recently purchased. I've added some embellishments: feathers, fibre and bling to finish it off!
Sooooo sweet ... this little baby girl asleep. This is one of Darla's darling images on a mini card. I printed the image twice and layered it to make the image pop. The patterend papers are digital papers, the sentiment stamped. As embellishments I added organza ribbon and a little bling.
The image I am working with is the Paisly Peacock. Paisley made me think of pink.
I coloured the image with my pencils and fussy cut the paisley parts out 2 extra images. I layered the image and added some gems and; glitter. If you wondered, I'm tickled pink with how it turned out.
Looking forward to see your creations!
