Pixie Cottage Challenge...Wet or Dry Embossing + a sketch!



Note: This week my husband and I are on vacation and we plan to return home this Saturday. I have pre-scheduled my post for The Pixie Cottage's Wet or Dry Embossing Challenge. For more information regarding this weeks challenge, please click here.

Hello Everyone,

This weeks Pixie Cottage Challenge is to make a card based off of the following sketch and you have to incorporate some type of embossing onto your card.
We would love to see you creations and we hope that you have lots of fun challenging your creativity! As with all of out challenges, you aren't required to use The Pixie Cottage Stamps but if you have them, feel free to use them:) For more DT inspiration, please click here.


My card features one of the newest Pixie Cottage Stamps (Crawling Cassie) and she is colored in with Copic Markers and I embellished her diaper with Startdust Stickles and her hair bow with a single half pearl. I embossed my card with the Cuttlebug Swiss dots and numbers embossing folders. The card stocks are Bazzill ,Papertrey Ink and a 4 inch paper Dollie. Other tools and embellishments used were a rectangle scallop punch,Nesties lg. circle die, paper pierce tool and Prima flowers. The sentiment is from The Pixie Cottage.

Have fun with the challenge and I will see you all when I return home from Mississippi!

hugs

Awww, how cute is that baby? :) Luv the baby pink and all the frills. Have a great day Risa!

The way you colored this, reminds me of a decal or rub on. VEry pretty. I am gonna be making a ton of baby cards this summer. Seems the recession brought out baby making skills in a lot of people. Sadly, none of the babies are coming from my own kids, so I spoil all their friends instead.

I am off to the airport-to pick up hubby. He started a business (eyes roll here) but it ain't a business until ya make some money, right???
