The Pixie Cottage Challenge #60 - Sketch and/or Easter


It's Wednesday so it means another challenge over at The Pixie Cottage!
As always we have 2 parts to the challenge and you can choose either or both to play along with.
We have a fabulous sketch and our theme this week is "Easter" so it's time to break out the baskets, bunnies and Easter Eggs!

Remember you can use the sketch or the optional technique or both!

Challenges:
Alys - Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes
Belli Challenge - Animals
Alphabet Challenge - R is For Ribbon
The Crafty Pad - Ribbon
Lexi's - Easter
Catered Crop - Card Inspiration (pastels, Easter, ribbon, scallops)
Incy Wincy - Pastel Colors
Ladybug Crafts - Spring Colors
Gingerloft - Flowers
Cupcake Inspirations - Photo (cupcake with Spring flowers in green, lilac, pink, yellow and white)
Lets Ink It Up - Embossing (must use a rubber stamp)


Card Recipe:
Image - Buffy The Bunny by Alisa Ramirez
Medium - Copic Markers
Paper - Stash
Border Sticker - Martha Stewart
Die Cut - Spellbinders
Small roses - Wild Orchid Crafts
Large Flower - Prima
Embossing Folder - Crafts Too
Sentiment - Studio G


This was the great sketch we started with.



I used sheer dotted ribbon to weave around the die cut, I've seen this done before but this was the first time I tried it, and I really like how it turned out.
I added a little paint and topped it with Glamour Dust on the hair bow for a little extra sparkle.
I hope you'll get "Hopping Along" to The Pixie Cottage and show us your Easter creations too!
