The Pixie Cottage Challenge & Passionately Artistic Challenge

The Pixie Cottage has a sketch and/or theme.
The theme is Buttons, Brads & Bows. I used one of the new
Pixie Cottage images called Best Hugs. Don't ya love it!!
I water colored the image and cut with a Spellbinder
label #14 which was foam dotted on.

The green stripe was placed on the diagonal and then
stitched onto the green. I cut out the little blue corner
designs and added the ribbon. The sentiment was punched
with Su Scalloped and plain ovals. A couple brads
added and foam dotted on.
Check out the great cards the team has for inspiration.

Entering Challenges;
One Stitch At A Time: Punch it
Anything Goes: Anything goes
Simon Says Stamp: Dies and/or Punches
The Paper Shelter: Anything goes

For Passionately Artistic I have created a little wall hanging
a friend asked me to make. She wanted a Scripture and
flowers so I made a variety of sizes and colors.
I started with a distressed oval to put the
different flowers and leaves on. The scripture was cut with a
Spellbinder label #1, distressed and embossed with a dotted swiss
folder. I also cut a pocket with a Spellbinder label #1 .
Glittered up my butterfly and some of the flowers.

The four scriptures were made into
tags and put in the pocket.
I used some tea stained scrim on different
parts of the background.
Be sure to stop by and join the party!
