Spring Time Hannah at The Pixie Cottage and SWEET STUFF!!!
Happy Wednesday everyone!! I hope your week is going very well and that Springtime has finally arrived for all of you!! I am certainly enjoying this week and am feeling wonderfully well. No sooner do I feel GREAT than I realize why...lol...Pre-Chemo is tomorrow and the next batch of chemo is this coming Monday!! But this time I am gonna be much bigger and meaner than the dragon, I have decided!!
I have to tell you that I was so excited and humbled when the very creative and talented Katie Tate, the Lead DT over at The Pixie Cottage invited me to not only design a sketch for this week's challenge, but also to create a card using my sketch! Thank you so much, Katie, for this honor and privilege!! I hope that everyone enjoys my creation and will visit The Pixie Cottage challenge this week and see the beautiful creations by the regular DT over there and also hope you will participate along with us!! We would love to see your creations using my sketch!!
For my card I used Bazzill for the base, all matting is PTI, and the lovely DP by Best Creation was a gift from the very talented Suzan. Thank you so much, Sweetie!! The background panel was machine stitched and the next panel was encircled with a MS punch. The absolutely darling Spring Time Hannah With Butterflies was stamped on Cryogen White and colored with Copics. The flowers were colored with Smooch, and Diamond Stickles were used on the butterflies and flower centers. I used dotted grosgrain ribbon and some lovely fuschia trim for the horizontal, adding a flat bow and butterfly charm. I also added several gold flowers and fuschia roses onto MS punched branches as well as organza/jewel butterflies. The card was finished with gold pearls to soften the corners.
And now for some SWEET STUFF for YOU!! My sincere thanks to the very generous Michelle at Michelle's Scrapbooking and More - The Home of The Pixie Cottage Stamps for providing the 2 darling stamps in my Sweet Stuff today.
