Pixie Cottage Challenge - Sketch and Embossing

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday!

Well, the week is already half over and only a couple days until the weekend. We've been having beautiful weather here, almost summer like. So needless to say the crafting time has been at a minimum these last few days because we have been spending so much time outside. Hope you've been enjoying the Spring as much as we have!

I do have a card to share with you today, it's for the new challenge at Pixie Cottage. This week we want to see you either...use the sketch, the theme of embossing, or combine them both! Our challenges are now each Wednesday and there will always be a sketch and a theme to try! Hope you'll join in!

This is my take on the sketch and embossing challenge using a brand new Pixie Cottage image, Little Chick and Little Lamb. I think this image is just adorable and I've decided to use it to make a new baby card. I've colored with Copics and then added some stickles. The papers are Heidi Grace and I've stitched with the sewing machine on all the edges. I've embellished with cherry blossoms, buttons, and a sentiment from Whimsy Stamps.

This card also fits the challenges at:
The Pink Elephant: Nature (things found in nature)
My Time to Craft: On the Spot (I've used the dots embossing folder on the framed yellowed card stock)
A Spoon Full of Sugar: One for the Boys (baby boy card)

Thanks for dropping by, be sure to visit the Pixie Cottage blog to see the fabulous creations my fellow DT members made for the challenge this week. We hope you will join in the fun too!

Happy Stamping,
