Pixie Cottage #37....Team Sketch/Mellow Fruitness!

Hello Again!

I'm marching right along with this weeks Pixie Cottage Challenge. This weeks challenge is our team sketch designed by the talented Adrina and our theme this week is "Mellow Fruitiness". Did I hear someone say what is mellow fruitiness? lol Well according to Katie, the phrase "Mellow Fruitiness" simply means anything related to Autumn. As with all of The Pixie Cottage Challenges, you have a choice! You can either make a card according the our sketch or you can simply stay with the theme....your choice!

I titled my card "Natures Beauty" and it features Pumpkin Fairy Hannah, designed by Sandra Hammer, kissing the fruits of nature with her wand. The background design papers are by Die Cuts With a View and although the paper is a bit dark and busy, the contrasting fall colors are very pretty in real life. I embellished Hannah's wings, wand and the leaves with extra fine glitter.

This weeks challenge is so perfect for the fall season and I hope that you have tons of fun creating fall inspired cards. For more Pixie Cottage DT inspiration and the rules to the challenge, please click here.
