Introducing Cherrie with tag and a new challenge!!

Welcome to the first day of previews for Tickled Pink Stamps and our first challenge!!
Today I have Cherrie with gift tag, and isn't she adorable. She will be available to purchase on the 13th of January (can you believe it's a new year already... where has the time gone!!)
AND now let begin with the first challenge WHOO HOO are you all excited? We sure are, the challenge gals have been bursting at the seams to share their creations and get the challenge started, or should I say party started, hehe! And don't forget we are having a 3 month guest call HERE... And now the challenge is an EASY one for our first one....Anything goes!!

I have used my new Websters papers, also available from TPS (as was the tag die, a magnolia doohickey) and because they were so gorgeous I did not want to cover them up too much, hence my strangely shaped card, it's much larger than I normally do so I could get as much paper on as possible, I really hated cutting it up :) I made the flowers myself and then popped a tag in behind Cherrie (I tried to stick with a tag theme, lol) The sentiment ans swirl on the tag are from the valentines sentiment set, also being released this month from TPS. This set has a frame for your sentiments and a die (like the Christmas set) which are fabulous, I love the framed sentiment/matching die thing! I have also inked and glittered all my edges as ell as spritzing some glimmer mist around... no that it has shown up in the photos, ggrrr!!

Now I look at it I wish I had not made the card so large, or that I filled the card more, I guess it just looks too bare to me, hahaha!! I guess I just can't decide what I want to do :)

And here is a shot of my flower thingys, I was a bit pleased with how they turned out and originally made them with the idea of putting them on a hair clip or head band or something, but then I thought they went nice with the vintage style paper.
So I hope that you have all enjoyed Cherrie today and that you will come and join us for our first Tickled Pink Challenge.
I will be back tomorrow with another preview!!
I am also entering this card over at:
