Last Lili of the Valley Thursday Challenge

Hello blog friends, if you've been to the LOTV challenge blog already then you've already found out that this is our last challenge. There will be an independent LOTV challenge blog but it will be run by our very own Jacqui. Look for it in 2012. The Inspire blog will be LOTV's focus, with lots of new and exciting content in the coming year. While I am sad that challenge blog will be no more, I am eager to see what's in store for the Inspire blog! 
Now onto the final challenge. We're using Pink, White and Silver for our projects today. I thought of this beautiful image right away, 'Christmas Magic'. She looks perfectly elegant in her pretty coat and scarf, and pink is her color. 

I stamped her in Memento Ink, using London Fog instead of black for a softer look. 

She's colored with Copics, and the fur is glittered with Stickles. The patterned papers are hard to see in the pictures, but they're the Victorian Holiday collection from Raspberry Road designs. I love the beautiful pale pinks, soft blue greens and vintage designs in this collection. 

See the tiny tag I attached to the bow? I love tiny tags, but there seems to be a shortage of really small sentiments to fit on them. I have some, but I love variety. I came up with a solution... I printed a ton of little sentiments in all kinds of fonts on a sheet of paper. And yes, I spent an hour punching them all out with a SU tag punch, lol! But at least I'll have a dozen different kinds of holiday sentiments ready to go at any time. 

Thanks for stopping by, take care!
