The Pixie Cottage Challenge #104

Good Morning All,
It's time for this week's challenge over at The Pixie Cottage and as usual, we have a choice for you - the theme of  EMBOSSING or the wonderful sketch below.  Of course, you can combine the two if you want to!!  I have used the theme for my card.

This little cutie is called "Give Me a Hug" and can be found HERE at Michelle's Scrapbooking and More in The Pixie Cottage range of rubber stamps. Love that little pup she is hugging!! I really enjoyed making this card - she was a joy to colour and paper piece. I have taken to using white card coloured with a matching Promarker for my matting - so much easier than trying to match a coloured card - you don't need to buy so many different ones and you never run out of a particular colour - unless your Promarker runs out of course - LOL!!

 Close-up showing her paper pieced dress.

And the simple decoration on the inside.

Medium - Promarkers
Papers - Docrafts Me to You Spring Chic
Embossing Folder - Craft Concepts "Budding Vine" - love this
Mini pearls and ribbon - stash
Flowers - Woodware punches
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards

We had some great entries for last week's challenge and I am looking forward to seeing what you create this week. Take a look at the rest of the DT's gorgeous offerings and be inspired - you can find them all on The Pixie Cottage Challenge blog.
Thanks for looking and for all your lovely comments.
