Are you ready for the Pixie Cottage Challenge today?? We have a great sketch and/or theme of inside and out this week. Pop over and join us and while you are at it check out all the new Pixie Cottage stamps and digis at Michelles Scrapbooks and More! I used some textured green as a base to make my gate card. The striped dp is out of my scrap box. I love this beautiful lily image by Artish. I decided to go with the distressed look. The image is watercolored and popped it up with some mulberry paper tucked behind it. There is a brad to loop the seam binding around to tie the card closed. The burgundy strip is punched with the MS botanical. I used the layout on the inside of my card. continuing with the striped paper and then used the burgandy panels that I embossed with my new cuttlebug folder my sis in law brought me. Used more of the seambinding with a little bow. The scripture was cut out with the #1 nestie with some shrank down lilies added to the corner along with some green mulberry paper then popped up. The side panels were also punched with the MS botanical punch and a distressed, embossed cream strip added. I shrank down the lily image, watercolored and pop dotted them over some olive mulberry paper. On the right side you are seeing the punched border from the front. The pictures do not really capture the nice dimension this card has. My stripe colors and mulberry paper go along with the Color Dare this week. My sweet biased honey thinks it one of the prettiest. :)
