It's time for another challenge over at The Pixie Cottage
As always we have a new sketch for you if you like to use sketches and we have the technique challenge of "Using Your Favorite Coloring Method".

Card Recipe:
Image - SouthEnd Girls 2 by Andrea T. Seiler
Paper - Fairytale Princess by The Paper Studio
Medium - Copic Markers
Glitter - Stickles in Lavender
Rhinestones - Michaels $1 Spot
Letter Beads - Walmart
Sentiment - Bo Bunny
Bow - Offray
Heart Punch - EK Success
Die Cut - Spellbinders

This is the great sketch we have this week for you to use if you like.

After coloring the image I cut her out and added Stickles to her wings.
Then I matted her on a Spellbinders die cut and then on a different patterned paper.
It's my daughter's 12th birthday on Friday and this may well go to her, I'll just have to see if I can keep it a secret until then! LOL

Fabulous card. Love the stickle wings. I'm sure your daughter would love to receive this card. I like the gingham paper Spellbinders die. You don't see gingham very often anymore. Thanks for joining us at Shannon's Sentiments.
