A Challenging {LPS} Preview

Happy Sunday! I hope you're having a great weekend! Well, it's "that time" again, a new release is coming your way from the {Little Paper Shop} and today we have your first preview - {Lucy and Lily Messages}.

Isn't she a little darling? I love her shy look and her curly pigtails. Too adorable!

It's challenging because I was busy combining inspiration and elements for this card! I used a sketch to make this card, MOJO121 from the Mojo Monday blog. Always a fan of the Mojo Monday and this is no exception! This one is still current, a new sketch will be up tomorrow. Here it is for reference:
I started off by stamping Miss Lily with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto PTI white cardstock and coloring with Copic markers. I of course did some highlighting with the Ranger white gel pen! Paper is the new Basic Grey Origins - yummy! I stamped the sentiment on a scrap and cut it out to layer over my circle. Viola!

It's a birthday card, so it also works for this week's The Pink Elephant Challenge {TPE49} - birthday theme. Fun! I love adding challenges to my projects -- and they make great inspiration {i.e., this started out as a Valentine and went off in a whole different direction so I could make it birthday for the TPE challenge!} ;)

Be sure to visit the LPS store blog today and leave a comment for a chance to win this set! It's as easy as that! See you back here tomorrow for another LPS preview day and a new LPS weekly challenge -- that means two ways to win tomorrow! Woot!

10 people made my day!:
