Lil Lolita Boutique Challenge #5!

It's Thursday so that means another Lil Lolita Boutique Challenge! We're on our 5th week of challenges already - when you're having fun time REALLY does fly! This week our challenge is to use RIBBON - lots of ribbon, a little ribbon...if you've got it on your card with a Lil Lolita you're in. On my card I actually used this fabulous new ribbon TAPE. I love it - I picked up this ribbon tape at Archiver's, but a lot of store & online stores are carrying it now. You can't really tell, but it's about 1" thick and I have 3 strips on my card. I followed this weeks Monday Mojo Sketch though of course I can't leave a sketch well enough alone & flipped it. I already have more ribbon tape on order - I think I'm in love with a new embellishment...surprise, surprise! LOL Oh, and did I mention PRIZES?! Yep, enter your Lil Lolita Ribbon creation on the Lil Lolita Boutique Blog & you're in the running to win THREE winner's choice Lil Lolita's - and the best part?! You get to choose from the original OR the just released! If Kellie has it in her store - you can pick it!
As you can see, I used the super sweet new Hippie Willow Lil Lolita! OMG, do you LOVE her? I love her. I colored her with copics & tried a new coloring technique on her hair but I need a lot more practice with it. I really like how her skin tone turned out and wouldn't you know I have NO idea which ones I used now?! LOL, I'm sooo not one of those that write it down as I go....and well, that's not working out so well for me - I need to re-think that.
I also used one of my cute cuttlebug embossing borders so I could enter The Beary Scrap Challenge to emboss! I love using my embossing folders - I just love the texture it creates & I always forget about these border ones b/c I'm never quite sure how to use them....was perfect for my little Hippie Willow tho! The flower brads came in a RAK from my new friend and fellow LLB DT member, Patricia. As soon as I got them, I knew they would be perfect for my card this week!
Now, be sure to check out the Lil Lolita Boutique Challenge blog for ALL the gorgeous cards made by the entire DT this week. You won't want to miss it - I'm always so impressed by the talent I'm surrounded by. And they are all such sweeties. I am really so honored that Kellie chose me to be part of her team. It's been so fun & I'm looking forward to so much more! I hope you will check out the Tickled Pink Stamps store to order your NEW Lil Lolita's - if you haven't seen them yet, believe me, you're gonna want them! And Kellie has them available NOW for 10% off & ships the Lil Lolita's worldwide so everyone can have a chance to get inky with them!
