Tickled Pink..

Couldn't think of another title but thought it suited the card seeing as I'm entering it into the TPS challenge this week which is Happy Haunts!! I picked up Lil Haunts Vampire Lilith last week when Kellie had some digi's on sale to raise money for her Mother and Daughter Chop for a Cause . If you would like to know how to donate, who she is raising money for and just how much hair she is chopping off then head on over HERE to find out more.

So I guess you would like to see my card!!
It's taken a couple of days to finish this card because I just didn't know what embellishments to use. Ended up going to my  boys and asking them..LOL!! They really do help a lot!!Ithink I've just been second guessing myself ever since I made a card last week that just looked wrong!!.
Anyway, I started off with black bling CS and used a Kaszazz background stamp to stamp the red CS! I then found some black ribbon/ thread (not sure what to call it) in my ribbon stash and thought it was perfect for this card!! I actually knicked it from a  friend cos I thought it would be perfect for a card one day!! LOL! I used Kaszazz DP paper, used black ink to distress the CS and then added embellishments!! The flowers were white so I coloured the red one's in with a Tria marker and black one's in with black ink refill. I'm not sure that I'm totally happy with my colouring but overall the card turned out pretty good!!
