The Pixie Cottage Challenge #1


Yes... you read the title correctly....The Pixie Cottage is pleased to announce our first sketch challenge...starting today!


This weeks challenge is to make a card based on the sketch that you see posted on my blog. The fun doesn't end here folks.... you can use any stamp that YOU desire, combine our challenges with other blog challenges and you have roughly 10 days to complete your card! How cool is that?! For more inspiration and challenge info. click on this link here.



One thing for sure, I really enjoyed making this card for our first challenge. I wanted to make a fun type card with bold Halloween colors. The name of my image is Little Sweet Pea and I think she is adorable! The card stocks used are SU, Papertrey Ink and Bazzill. The design paper is from my scrapbox stash. I used my largest Nestie circle die for the background circle and each square measures 1 1/4 inch. Little Sweet Pea is colored in with Copic Markers and I embellished her buttons with a bit of Stickles. The sentiment "Boo To You"is from the Pixie Cottage as well. I cut out each word and matted the words to the 1 1/4 inch squares. I also used Prima Flowers to embellish and each flowers center contains a black half pearl.

We can't wait to see your lovely cards and hope that you decide to play along! To see the Pixie Cottage DT samples click here! Feel free to add our logo to your side bar as well.

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!
