The Pixie Cottage Challenge #14 - Buttons - Guest Sketch

Happy Wednesday!
It certainly is a time for change at The Pixie Cottage as we add another dimension to our challenges.
Starting this week we will be having a Special Guest Sketch Artist every other week to share a sketch with you! These are some of the most popular skechers in the card blogging world and you will be amazed at the work they have created for The Pixie Cottage

Starting us off is the artist from the uber (as my DS would say) popular challenge site Midnight Madness, yes it's Priscilla!
She has made this super sketch for us and if you run over to The Pixie Cottage you will see the fabulous card she made with the sketch using the super new Hannah With Butterflies by Sandra Hammer stamp which is one of my favorites!

Here is the exclusive sketch she created for us.

The additional thing we'd like to see this week is Buttons on your card.
Remember you can chose to do the Sketch, the product or both!

I found a few challenges to go with my card:

CRAFT - Buttons
Crafty Anns - Let The Sun Shine In
Teddy Stampers - Spring
Fun 2 Stamp - Flowers
ResQ - Pick at least 2 clues from a puzzle. I chose flowers, square, punch, buttons, pattern, Spring
Just Cute Bears - Flowers
Magical Crafts - Animal Antics
Paper Jewels - Sewing and Buttons
Simple Doodles - Inspire Someone
Raise the Bar - Spring for It
The Pink Elephant - 1 image, 2 dies and 3 of your favorite embellishment (I've actually got 4!)
Wild Flower Patch - Punch It Up and Be Bold

Card Recipe:
Image - Barnie in Spring by ArTish from The Pixie Cottage
Papers - My Minds Eye Summer Song
Medium - Copic Markers
Die Cuts - Spellbinders
Buttons - The Paper Studio
Border Punch - Martha Stewart
Sentiment - Color Oasis

Inside is more dp and a message mat.

I just hope a bee doesn't come out and sting Barnie on the nose! LOL
I hope you've enjoyed the card, if you have be sure to check out all the other Design Team member creations and maybe have a try at the sketch (or the buttons!) yourself.

Katie, what a lovely bright card. I've just left a comment saying I'd not seen Barnie before but as he's a cutie I'm sure it won't be long before I see him again - I didn't expect it to be the next card entered for Crafty Ann's Challenge!!! Thank you for joining in with Crafty Ann's Challenge this fortnight and we hope to see you again very soon. Best wishes, Kym xxx
