Hannah at the Pond

It is time for a new challenge at The Pixie Cottage! Thank you to everyone who participated in our last challenge, I was blown away by all of the beautiful entries.
This week we have a great sketch for you to try and wonderful prizes to by won. I hope all of you will come over to the Pixie Blog and play along.
For my card, I used the Hannah at the Pond stamp by artist Sandra Hammer. Isn't she just beautiful!
After layering my MME dp and Gemstones cardstock, I water colored the image and sponged a sunset sky. I then used my Spellbinders Classic Frame die and popped it up to create a picture-in-a-frame look. I used Distress inks to ink the details and edges. Martha Stewart Pearls and diamond Stickles complete this card.
Here is this weeks sketch, I hope to see you there!

Win these stamps with your entry!!

Challenges:
Whimsy Stamps - Watercolor (the entire image is water colored with SU reinkers.
Allsorts - Bring out your bling -(Embossing powder contains sparkle, flowers have stickles, the gemstones cardstock is full of shimmer and of course, the pearls!)
Simon Says Stamp - thinking of you (Hannah is the perfect all occasion card. She just looks like she is thinking of you doesn't she? :)
