The Pixie Cottage Challenge #16 - Floral Fantasy - Guest Sketch

It's Once Upon a Wednesday again at The Pixie Cottage and we have a super Special Guest Sketcher for you today.
It is the fabulous Jacque from Jacques Magnolias and she came up with this fantastic sketch for us.

Please drop over and leave her some love, she is genuinely one of the nicest crafters I've ever met.
Also todays card features some of the fabric flowers I showed you in Saturdays tutorial, if you missed it you can see all the details HERE

Of course I added a few other challenges along the way to help:

Crafty Catz - Stitching
Stamptacular Sunday - "Sew" Special

Card Recipe:
Image - Buffy the Bunny and Little Chick by Alisa Ramirez for The Pixie Cottage
Paper - DCVW Nanas Nursery Baby Boy

Here you can see I popped up the flower on Buffys headband and tried to coordinate the colors with the fabric for the flowers.

Katie, your card is just so cute. I love the bunny with her cute little headband. The colors are fresh and I'm jealous of the stitching. I can never get my right.
