Pixie Cottage #51 - Punch It Up!

It's a New Year and time to get back to challenges!
We are starting out with a very easy one over at The Pixie Cottage as we want you to Punch it Up!! Most card makers use punches so you don't have any excuse not to play along with us! For that love sketches as a starting point to their card we have one of those too if you'd like to use it!

Challenges:
Auds Sentiments - Anything Goes
Fairy Knoll - Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Victorine Stamps - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Ladybug Crafts Ink - Anything Goes
Frosted Designs - Use a Sentiment
Robyns Fetish - Favorite Technique
Craft Your Days Away - Punch It Out
Tuesday Throwdown - Embossing
Simple Doodles - Embossing


Card Recipe:
Image - Hannah with Sled
Paper - Fine and Dandy True Blue by My Minds Eye
Medium - Copic Markers
Die Cut - Spellbinders
Punch - French Scroll by Martha Stewart
Embossing Folder - Basic Grey for Sizzix
Sentiment - Heidi Grace
Flowers - Wild Orchid

This is the super sketch we had to work with:




I stamped Hannah with her sled and colored her and then cut her out to fit along with the sketch. I picked colors from the papers and I love how the soft mustard yellow and light aqua work together.
I embossed the back panel with one of the wonderful Basic Grey embossing folders and sanded it lightly to show the color through.
Now as a reminder this is a super easy challenge to join in with so please go and grab your punches and play along with us!
