Pixie Cottage #44...Sketch/Ribbons & Bows




Hello and Happy Wednesday!

This weeks Pixie Cottage Challenge is a great one! If you love sketches, check out our team sketch designed Pam. Pam's sketches are amazing and I find them very inspiring, thanks for everything Pam! This weeks theme is a fun one, ribbons and bows! Whew....I can already hear the your brains buzzing with excitement, I mean who doesn't love to embellish with ribbons and bows? I would be so lost without me ribbons!!!

My card features the new Hannah's Letter and it is a stamp set that includes two sentiments and comes mounted with cling foam. Personally, I like the smaller size of Hannah and I hope that there are more Hannah stamp sets sold in the future.

Quick details about my card, I have a lot of white going on here and added texture by embossing my base mat with Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots embossing folder. Hannah is colored in with Copic Markers and the snow is dotted with Stickles Ice. I hope that you can see the ribbon, it's a little sheer but I have a strip of ribbon and a bow even! (my base layer which is white is absorbing my ribbon and it's difficult to see in the picture, but it's there*ΓΌ*)

For more DT inspiration and the rules to the challenge, please click here. Have fun with this weeks challenge and remember....you have a choice with our challenges. You can choose either our team sketch, or you can create according to our themes. Either way, have fun creating!!!!
