Pixie Cottage - Sketch and Paper Tole

For the Whimsy Stamps blog hop, please click HERE!

Good Morning!

Today is Wednesday and that means a brand new challenge over at The Pixie Cottage! This week we have a fun and easy to use sketch along with the theme of Paper Tole, which is another word for 3D elements. As always you can do the sketch, the theme, or both to enter this challenge. We hope you'll join us this week!

For my card I've used both the sketch and theme and paired that with the stamp Hannah with Butterflies. I've colored the image with Copics, paper pieced the dress and hair bow, and then popped up a couple of the butterflies. I've also added some Stickles to accent the butterflies.

I've paired the sketch with some new BG Cappella papers. I stitched the edges on the sewing machine and then added some Antique Linen ink to the edges of the pink papers. I also crumpled and tore the edges on the designer paper. I've embossed the 2 squares and then added some flowers, stickles, and sticky pearls to finish off this card. There was a piece of ribbon on the sketch, but I couldn't find the right shade in my stash to match these papers, so I left it out.

This card also fits the challenges at:
Totally Gorjuss: Round and Round
Pile It On!: photo inspiration
Pixie Dust: Cut it Out
Clearly I Stamp: Flowers
Prairie Fairy: Flowers
Our Daily Bread: Flowers
Crafty Catz: Petals and Pearls

Thanks for dropping by today, hope you have a lovely day. And if you're up for a challenge, head on over to The Pixie Cottage and join in the fun!

Happy Stamping,
