April With Hearts


Hi everyone! It's 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 fun new sketch and this week's theme is "Back To School".


My card was inspired by this week's sketch. I shrunk it to fit an A2 size card.  The beautiful image is the April With Hearts rubber stamp by Pixie Cottage Stamps.


My card base is Cranberry Crisp layered with Basic Black then strips of Ever After patterned paper stitched around the edges. The image was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black on White Cardstock and colored in using copic markers. I die cut and embossed the image using Labels Eighteen Nestabilities and distressed the edges with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. To ground the image I punched out a piece of Cranberry Crisp using the Word Window Punch. To embellish the card I added tons of black pearls.

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