April With Hearts

Happy Bank Holiday Everyone,

It's a shame it's been a wet one in the UK, but I guess we should all be used to it by now, lol.

I have finally got round to making a card using "April with Hearts", which is a Pixie Cottage stamp. I won her a couple of months ago on the Pixie Cottage Challenge Blog and have been eager to ink her up since her arrival, but design team cards have come first and I haven't had enough time until now. Isn't she gorgeous!

I have coloured her using copics and added some flowersoft to some of the flowers and the grass and I love the effect.

Materials Used:-

April with Hearts - Pixie Cottage Stamp
May Your Day Be Special - Magnolia Stamp
Martha Stewart Art Deco and Frond Punches
Marianne Design Swirls Die
Mesh from Zoe Bunny Crafts
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
PomPoms from Craftystash

I have entered this card into the following challenges:-

Pixie Cottage - Sketch
Corrosive - Celebrate
Crafty Catz - spots
Cutie Stampers - Flowers
Creative Beli - Birthday (my poor new stamp)
