Pixie Cottage DT card! Sketch and/ Wrap it in Ribbon!

Good Afternoon My Dear Followers & Blogging Friends!

Sorry my Post is a wee bit late! I am having some internet promblems as we in the middle of switching providers so I am not too sure when it will be totally sorted....

Anyhow....here's my card for the new challenge that started over on Pixie Cottage and our theme for this week is to Use some Ribbon. We also have a lovely sketch which the lovely Katie has designed for us, but this choice is yours, you can choose to use either the sketch or Ribbon or both. Please hop over to the main Pixie Cottage blog to check out the lovely prize up for grabs as well as the lovely cards my fellow Dt members made...The inspiration is just so amazing.....


My Card Recipe:

My Image is a Rubber Stamp from Pixie Cottage and it is called Springtime Hannah with Butterflies and its by Sandra Hammer. It is available here.

I coloured my image with my Promarkers and then I used the Tea die distress ink to do the edges of the image. I then cut multiple layers out using the cricut machine, which I then layered my image on.

My background paper is from the Roam paper pack by K&Co, I have had these papers for a while but never got round to using them as they all have a vintage feel to them, and I do find doing vintage cards sometimes a wee bit hard. Anyway I layered my main background paper onto two different colours of plain cardstock, I used sanding paper to sand the sides a bit, and then some distress inks.

The flowers I made myself using different sizes of scalloped circle dies, which I layered and and distressed to give them a bit of a distressed look, finally I added the brads to the centre of the flowers.

Lastly I added the lace and ribbon accross the page and made the ribbon bow thingy...lol
Overall I am very happy with the end result of my card...I hope you all like it too....
