A Sneak Peek at a brand new Pixie Cottage stamp!

Happy Saturday everyone!
One of the best things about being on a Design Team is that you get to see and work with the new stamps before they go on general release! It's a little like knowing what someone is getting as a gift and getting to play with it before they do! LOL
So over at Michelle's Scrapbooking and More they have brand new Pixie Cottage stamps and this one I got to play with is so cute! It's designed by Alisa Ramirez and is called What A Doll!
Be sure to go to the Pixie Cottage blog as well to see other new cards from the Design Team using these fabulous new stamps!

I've used a few challenges to help me along my way!
Whimsy Stamps wanted Sugar and Spice or Snips and Snails
PaperTake Weekly gave me the sketch
Tuesday Taggers had the theme of "Shades of Autumn"
Crafty Calendar also had Autumn as their theme and so did Secret Crafter
Trimmies Craft Challenge had a photo inspiration that really worked for this card.
Treehouse Stamps wanted a "Just Because" card
Gingersnaps had challenge GC25 which was Harvest and I think the Autumn colors of this card count there :)
And finally Stamp Something wanted to see Brown as the predominent color and Stampin For The Weekend wanted Orange, Brown and Leafy Green and My Creative Clutter wanted Red, Orange and Brown so it fits there too!

The dp are from K&Co and although they are not themed as Autumn the soft warm tones made me think of Fall.
The image is colored with Copic's and Promarkers.
The flowers are Prima and the brads are The Paper Studio from Hobby Lobby.
The bows and the lace are both Offray.
The sentiment is a Studio G from the $1 spot at Michaels.

The inside is more dp and a message mat cut from a new Labels Nestie.

You must agree she certainly is a doll!
Take a look at these great stamps over at Michelle's Scrapbooking and More and all the examples are at The Pixie Cottage
Hope to see you over there!
