A Pixie Sketch and Flowers

Happy Wednesday!

Can you believe the week is already half over! It's been rainy and cold here the past couple of days, but it's suppose to warm up by the weekend. Here's hoping!

Today is a new challenge over at The Pixie Cottage. The challenge this week is a sketch along with the theme of Flower Frenzy! As always, if you join in the fun, you can use the sketch, the theme, or both!

I decided to use both the sketch and theme for my card this week. I can't resist a good sketch and adding flowers...well we all know I have that covered! LOL! I did flip the sketch for my card.

I used the stamp Girls of the World Janneke and colored her with Copics in pinks and browns to match these My Minds Eye papers. The card stock is brown and pink and I've distressed the edges and then stitched the papers on each layer. To finish the card I embellished with flowers, cherry blossoms, flat backed pearls, ribbon, and a butterfly charm.

This card also fits the challenges at:
Secret Crafter: Distressing
Creative Card Crew: April Showers Bring May Flowers

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you'll play along with the challenge at The Pixie Cottage this week! Have a great day!

Happy Stamping,
