At the Pixie Cottage we are changing things up a little
and are now going to be offering challenges every week!
Also we are changing to a "Take Your Pick" style challenge. We will give you a sketch and a technique/product/theme and you can chose to do one, the other or both!
This week's sketch comes from Senior Team Member Pam.
Along with the sketch we have the technique of Embossing, wet or dry, so please play along with the sketch, technique or both!
Remember you can use any stamp company you like but if you have some Pixie Cottage stamps we'd love to see what you can do with them.

I used an adorable little image created by Eileen Gutierrez. She is simply an amazing illustrator. This stamp can be purchased at The Pixie Cottage.
For my card I decided to make an easel card. I just love the way that they are displayed.
My papers are by sassafras and bazzill. I used the sketch and had some dry embossing on my easel card. I just love the orange and blue colors together.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Bah! humbug #12 - Embossing : my circle embossing
Crafty creations #61 - Anything Goes
Polka Doodles - Birthday Challenge Happy Birthday
Just Add Ink - Just Add ... Ink
