Pixie Cottage #39....Sketch or Embossing

Hello Everyone and Happy Wednesday!

Today's Pixie Cottage Challenge kicks off with a team sketch and this weeks theme is Embossing! As with all of our challenges, you are free to choose! You can make a card according to this weeks theme or you can make a card based on our team sketch.

For this weeks challenge, I decided to play with my new stamp designed by Di Carubia. (To You From Us) I think this set of kittens are adorable and sweet and couldn't resist inking them up! My color combo is a pastel shade of Aqua and I embellished my card with sheer white ribbon,half pearls and flowers. I colored my images in with Copic Markers and add a tiny dab of Stickles to both button noses and the rose. The design papers are all by October Afternoon.

We look forward to seeing your "Embossed" cards and we hope you have fun with this weeks challenge! For more DT inspiration and challenge information, please click here.
