The Pixie Cottage Wednesday Challenge - Flowers


Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday! Today is a special Wednesday! You know why? Because it's the 4th Wednesday in a month and that means it's Candy Time!!!!!!! The Whimsy DT is giving away a surprise stamp every Wednesday and my turn is the 4th Wednesday of a month. The candy will be open only for 24 hours!!! Everyone can enter and it starts today at noon EST here on my blog! So make sure you come back here at noon to enter my Whimsy Wednesday Surprise Candy Giveaway! I'll be giving away a stamp from the Meljens Designs Collection! Woohoo! :-) As it is a surprise the stamp will be revealed not before the winner is announced!

Ok onto to my card for today! Wednesday means also it is time for another Pixie Cottage Challenge! This week the theme is Flowers and of course a sketch. You'll find the sketch at the Pixie Cottage Challenge blog  as well as all the details for entering the challenge! 

This will be my last card as a guest for the Pixie Cottage Challenge. I had so much fun playing along for the month of January! Big thank you goes to Michelle the owner of the Pixie Cottage and Katie the Dt-Leader. Thanks for having me!


For my card I used Little Chick and Little Lamb by Alisa Ramirez. So super cute!!! I colored with my Copics and the DP is from Basic Grey. I decided to keep the card clean and simple. With only the ribbon and the button and of course some flowers as embellishments. The sketch I used is from Mojo Monday. And I think it turned out pretty well. What do you all think?

Here are some more photos:

I used my favorite paper for coloring with Copics and that is Curious Iridescent Cryogen White. I adore the sparkle that it has. If you click on the picture to enlarge it you should be able to see the shimmer.


I also finished the inside

I'll be back at 12 pm (noon) EST to post my Whimsy 24 hour candy so make sure
to come back later again to enter!!


Hugs,

A wonderful card Iris. Your colouring is superb, as is your choice of papers and embellishments. I've only just found your blog address, so I'd like to say a big thank you for the fabulous Pixie Cottage guest designer creations that you've made over the last month.
Hugs,
