Hannah On Bench


Hi everyone!  Time again for a new challenge at The Pixie Cottage.  As always, there are two parts to the challenge and you may choose either or both to play along with. We have a fabulous new sketch to spark your creativity and this week's theme is "Wrap It In Ribbon".  The beautiful image featured on today's card is the Hannah On Bench cling mount stamp by Pixie Cottage Stamps.  I paired it with Regal Rose patterned paper from the Stampin' Up Patterns Pack II.


My card base is Basic Black layered with PTI White then Regal Rose Patterned Paper and Kraft Cardstock finished on one end using the Scallop Dot Edge Punch. I wrapped two strips of Black Grosgrain Ribbon around the card base and added a bow in front.  The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI White and colored in using copic markers then layered on Basic Black. The sentiment was also stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on PTI White. I cut the words apart then layered them on Basic Black. To embellish the card I added a pretty pink gem in each corner of the card base.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
