Guest Design Card No. 2 for Pixie Cottage



Good Morning Peeps,

I can't believe where the days go but losing my internet and home phone last night certainly didn't help me.  I had planned so much around the computer, blogging, blogging and more blogging, lol, no not really, I had DT cards to post, internet shopping, no not clothes, boring food for survival, and I had no internet and no landline, blooming marvellous.  An iphone is only good for so much!

Right, now that I have waffled, onto my Design Card No. 2 for The Pixie Cottage.  Gosh I love their sketches and this week's theme was to add 3 of something.  Ummmmmm, I have used 3 large flowers, 3 small flowers, 3 different types of cardstock, white, lilac and silver and oh yeah 3 pins in the flowers, two crystal headed pins and one white love heart.  That should cover it, lol!


Okey Dokey, lots of work has gone into this card.  The Design paper is Anna Griffin and the scalloped square has been paper pierced and embossed using a template, will try and have a look at what it is called, I have had it about 5 years and I just came across it at the weekend and thought I'd give it an outing. 

Both the wedding couple and the sentiment stamp are Pixie Cottage stamps available right HERE


Other materials Used:-

Doily behind the main image
Martha Stewart Love heart punch
Walnut stain distress ink and diamond stickles
Flowers and dew drop garland are from Wild Orchid Crafts
Leafs are cut using quickutz
