CPS101 and Pink Buttons

Kimmie's 3rd birthday challenge was to use Pink and a Button on a card.  I chose this absolutely adorable Tilda image to color and used the sweet sketch from Card Positioning Systems.  Have you used their sketches at all?  They always give such great inspiration!!!  Especially for me, cuz I am horrible at making decisions if I have too many choices.  I love following a sketch or color challenge, because it's one less thing I have to decide! :)

The little message on Tilda's tag is from PTI, Tilda is colored with Copics and the BG paper is from an older K&Co Mat Stack that I just love.  I'll be sad when it is all gone!! 

I attached the ribbon onto the back of the card with tape.  It seemed easier than trying to make it do the criss cross thing than wrapping it around.  I added little highlights to Tilda's eyes and clothes and hair with my white gel pen.  I don't really know what I'm doing, but I've found the best way to improve your stamping is to watch what one of the "pros" do and copy them.  So I've copied, and I like it and now I can be a pro, too!! LOL

Thanks for stopping by.  I have about 4 posts up today, so be sure not to miss any of them!
