Pixie Cottage Challenge #88 Buttons, Bows and Brads

For this weeks Pixie Cottage Challenge I used the Pixie Cottage Stamp called Best Hugs by Alisa Ramirez.
I used brads, a bow, and made my own button, for my 2nd boy paper bag album. (I have 2 friends that will be receiving these)  I just love these card stocks from Canvas Corp.  They coordinate so nicely!  My image was colored and shaded with my copics.

It's Wednesday so it means another challenge here at The Pixie Cottage!
As always we have 2 parts to the challenge and you can choose either or both to play along with.
We have a fabulous sketch and our theme this week is "Brads, Buttons and Bows"

Remember 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 will be announced on the Friday after the challenge ends.
