Pink Twinkle Tots

I've had this stamp for awhile now, and I can't believe that this is the first time I got around to using her (not to mention that the rest of the Twinkle Tots still remain uninked....and those darn Cheeky Cherry Girls are now on my wish list......I think I need more time in a day to use all these adorable stamps!

Love these Basic Grey Lemonade Papers and they were perfect for the Basic Grey Color Challenge of Maroon, Lemon and Pink.  I colored her in with my copics and then just had to paper piece part of her with these yummy papers (and then I added a bit of shadow to the papers with my copics).  I followed the sketch over at The Pink Elephant and will be using this one again!  The charm was colored with a R85 copic and I tried a new way of attaching it.  When making my bow with the Bow Easy, I slid the charm on before threading it through the back side and it worked, well, like a charm....  I also added some stickles to the flower on her hat to bring in a bit of sparkle.

In addition to the challenges above, I am also entering the following:
