For Mom or a Special Lady at The Pixie Cottage

This is the last Pixie Cottage challenge before we take a break for summer.  With Mother's Day coming up in a few weeks, this week's challenge is Mom or Someone Special.   As always, there is a great sketch to go along with the theme.  You can follow the sketch or the theme, or do both.

I used Valentine Hannah, available at Michelle's Scrapbooking, and I covered hearts in her hand and basket  with Flower Soft, drew in some stems.  Hannah is colored with Copics, and background was colored with Pebbles Chalks.  She was cut/embossed with Spellbinders Labels 17.  All DP is from Prima Fairy Flora pad.  The background DP was embossed with CB folder.  Sentiment from Flourishes, cut and embossed with Spellbinders Labels 10.  All edges inked with Distress Ink. 

Stamps:  Valentine Hannah from Michelle's Scrapbooking; Flourishes Spring Bouquets.
Paper:  Flourishes Classic White, Prima Fairy Flora pad, The Paper Studio.
Ink:  Memento, Distress Ink.
Accessories:  Spellbinders Labels 10 and Labels 17, Flower Soft, flat-back pearls, Cuttlebug Geometric Rings EF, Pebbles chalks.

Green and Gorgeous at The Pixie Cottage

Sorry I have been MIA for so long...some health challenges, my daughter's wedding - which was BEAUTIFUL!, and a relationship breakup...all together a bit overwhelming.  I plan to post wedding pictures and shots of the things that I made for the wedding in a later post. 

Today's card is for The Pixie Cottage Challenge #117, which is Green and Gorgeous.  As always, there is a great sketch to follow, you can follow the theme, or you can do both.  I chose to follow the sketch, though I do have some green in there. :)

I used the adorable Hannah With Umbrella , available at Michelle's Scrapbooking.  She is colored with Copics and then cut out and attached to an embossed background.  The embossed gold paper is a scrap from my stash, used a MS border punch on it.  Sentiment from Stampin Up, cut out with Spellbinders Circle and attached to Spellbinders Persian Accents die.  Added the dainty little Memory Box Fuschia diecut.  Few rhinestones and Stickles.
