Pixie Cottage Sketch #50 Party Celebration

This is my last Pixie Cottage Challenge card for the year.  This is one of my favorite images.( From You to Us by Di Carubia) I was helping my friends daughter create a card for her mom and needless to say Jessie got a little carried away with the brown chalk.  I know that her mom will love it though!
Hopefully all your Christmas cards are made and sent and you are getting ready for the big day! This is our last Once Upon A Wednesday for the year and will run for two weeks. I'm sure you appreciate all the wonderful work the team has done for the year and will agree they need a week off ;)

Now on to the sketch, this one was designed by team member Tanya and I'm sure you'll love it!

In addition to the sketch we have the optional challenge of the "Party/Celebration" theme on your project. You can interpret that in many ways, maybe New Years, Birthday, Anniversary or even the birth of a New Baby!

As always you can use the sketch or the optional technique or both!

The randomly picked winner will win two stamps of their choice from the Pixie Cottage Collection. The winner and the Top 3 favorites will be announced on the Friday after the challenge ends.

Challenges that I am entering are:
Bunny Zoe = Sparkle and Shine
Mad For Markers - Anything Goes
One Stitch At A Time - Anything Goes
Alys Sunday - Anything Goes
The Crafty Pad - Anything Goes
