Pixie DT and Challenge

Good Morning!

Happy Wednesday, another week half over already! Today is our challenge day over at The Pixie Cottage and this week we have a guest with us. Suzanne Dean has created a fabulous sketch for you to work with and you can combine it with our theme of vintage/distressed. As always you can do both the sketch and theme or one or the other to qualify for the prize. We hope you'll join us this week and share your creations!

I've created my card using both the sketch and theme along with a brand new Pixie Cottage stamp from new artist Di Carubia. The image I've used is called Whispering Maisy and Matt.

I started with Suzanne's sketch and use some papers in soft and neutral color tones. The edges have been distressed to fit the vintage theme. I embellished with satin and lace ribbon and some pearls and roses to also fit the theme. The image was colored with Copics and framed with circle nesties.

This card also fits the challenges at:
My Time to Craft: Tooo Cute
Die Cut Dreams: Shabby Chic
Lots to do Challenges: Friendship
Crafty Ann's Challenges: Anything Goes
Crafty Card Makers: Distressed
Whoopsi Daisy Challenges: As You Like It
Polka Doodles: Summer Blooms

Thanks for dropping by today, have a great afternoon!

Happy Stamping,
