The Pixie Cottage # 28...Double Play or Sketch

Hello Everyone,

This weeks Pixie Cottage Challenge is based on this lovely sketch designed by our guest designer, Jay Jay. As with all of our challenges, you can make a card based on this sketch or you can make a card based on this weeks theme...Double Play! If you choose this weeks Double Play theme, you are required to use TWO stamps, an image and sentiment will meet the two stamp requirements.

I used both the sketch and the Double Play theme for my card. The name of my image is April With Hearts (designed by Sandra Hammer) and she is colored in with Copic Markers. My design paper is from my scrap bin and I used my EK Success border punch for the trio of panels. On an impulse, I added ribbon to the scalloped and machine stitched the ribbon.
Other embellishments are half pearls, roses and Stickles.

Oh......due to the fact that Michelle is attending CHA and Katie is on vacation, you will have two weeks to complete this challenge, the Pixie's will be on vacation next week! So enjoy this weeks challenge and get creative!!!! We can't wait to see your cards!!
