Happy Sad, Sad Happy

Hello My Friends!

Today my card for you is a happy/sad juxtaposition. This card features Lilith from the Tickled Pink 'Lil Lolita' Collection; and as you can see she is not the happiest of happys at the moment.

You see, Lilith has a friend that is moving, a BFF even. And while Lilith is very happy that her friend is happy and off on a new adventure...she is sad too...because she will miss her friend's presence very much (someone should tell Lilith about the internet). :)

Anywho, I think these stamps from Tickled Pink Stamps are really fun and different and was excited to get them inked up. Generally though, I have a lot easier time creating happy, sunshiney cards, so with Lilith I just couldn't resist bringing in an ironic element and then tell a story for this card. Oh, and I also used this week's Mojo Monday Sketch 144!
I hope you like it! Maybe it will remind you of a time you had a sad/happy moment.

Thanks for popping by today!
