Pixie Cottage Saturday Showcase - April is Thinking of You

Happy Saturday,
It's time to see some more wonderful creations from the Design Team using the latest Pixie Cottage stamps
Also remember that the latest Wish Upon A Wednesday challenge is still going (with a Red and Pink theme) and there's blog candy there to be had too!

I found just a few challenges to go with this one ;)
Practical Scrappers wanted Patterned Paper
A Spoon Full of Sugar had a Freestyle challenge
Papertake had a great sketch
Everybody Art had a color combo of Blue, White and Brown
365 Cards Day 334 had the 3 B's, Blue, Blossom and emBoss
Frosted Designs wanted to see Embossing
Trimmies had a Paper Piecing challenge
Totally Gorjuss also wanted Paper Piecing
Hand Full of Stamps had a Hearts challenge
My Time To Craft had a theme of Elegant Rose and I used paper roses
The Secret Crafter wanted Hearts



I used April with Hearts and cut her with a Label Nestie.
I paper pieced her dress, bow and shoes and colored the rest of her with Copics.
The papers are actually brown not black as they appear in some of the photos.
The border punch is Martha Stewart.
The embossing folder is the Plaid one from the HSN Holiday Collection.
The flowers are Prima and I colored the base flower (and the two side roses) with Copic's to match the papers.
The sentiment is a Studio G $1 stamp.

The inside is more dp and a message mat with a matching punched border.

Here is a close up of Hannah and hopefully you can see the paper piecing on the dress.

I hope you like Hannah, she's already in the store and ready to purchase right now!
Have a great Saturday and be sure to come back tomorrow for a card with a difference (at least to me anyway)
