Simply Elegant

Egad! I have lost an entire day. Has that ever happened to you? You have things planned ahead of time (like blog posts) and then, before you notice, the day is gone and you realize you are late. So lets just pretend this posted on Tuesday ok! :)
This card is for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #103. I used PriscillaStyles Flower Trio image for my card (as you can see I only used one of the trio!)
I layered K&Company paper, used 3 ribbons from Really Reasonable Ribbon and one sweet flower from Wild Orchids Crafts and voila; done deal. Well of course I had to add sparkle, that is just the kind of girl I am.

Today I have another new image to share from PriscillaStyles Store! This is called "Ballerina Resting" and it so gorgeous! I cropped the wall and the flowering vines out to accommodate this weeks Midnight Madness sketch but I still think the image is gorgeous.
I have seen other artists separate their images into different sections and loved the way it looked. I was quite happy with the result.
I actually recycled a label to make the background. I ordered some paper from The Paper Temptress and the label had a beautiful black swirl background. After some cropping, it made a great background for my ballerina! If anyone knows who makes this die, let me know!

Here comes Peter Cottontail...

With Easter just around the corner, Priscilla over at PriscillaStyles has created with darling Easter bunny! I love the patchwork feel to the image and had a blast coloring it with my Promarkers.
I popped up the flower with dimensionals and added some stickles for bling. The flowers are from my fave flower shop, Wild Orchid Crafts and the ribbon is from the Really Reasonable Ribbon of the month club!
I used the new Midnight Madness sketch this week for inspiration!

Love is in the air

This week at the Pixie Cottage we are celebrating love! As always, we also have a sketch to play with and you can choose to use both theme and sketch or choose one.
My project this week was this fun box! I took an unfinished wood box, inked the edges, layered papers and then finished it off with Modge Podge and lots of flowers. Once dry I cut out my water colored bunny and was done! I think nothing says I love you like a beautiful bunch of flowers!
I can't wait to see what you enter in the Pixie Cottage Challenge this week!
