Summer Gretal:

Good morning all - I hope you enjoyed your weekend.  The weather was just perfect so we spent a lot of time outside enjoying the fresh air.

I also spent a wee bit of time in my craft room - I had received my big order from C.C. Designs a few weeks ago and have been itching to use the adorable little die cuts and stamps.
After the fact, I felt it needed some stitching (I mean, when don't I stitch) but of course couldn't get it in the sewing machine.  So I brought out my trusty white gel pen, I figured something was better than nothing :)
Card Ingredients:  C.C. Designs Gretal stamp, Craftsmart Black ink, K&Co paper, DCWV, Bazzill and Recollections cardstock, Prismacolor Pencils (email me for complete list), Gelly Roll white pen, C.C. Designs Fence Border, Grass Border, Flower Border, and Clouds die cuts, Copic outline pen, Stampendous! Kaleidoscope embossing powder (unheated), My Mind's Eye bakers twine, Doodlebugs button.

I made Gretal for the following challenges:  Sweet Stamping Pixies - summer pixies, Charisma Cardz and Cute Card Thursday - summer, The Paper Shelter - outdoors, Dream Valley - wings, PaperPlay - die cuts.

With all her adorable creations, Pam @ Expressions With Heart, has been an inspiration.  Be sure to go pay her a visit, I am sure you will be inspired like I was. 

Have a wonderful day!

Deanne, a gorgeous card. Beautiful colouring of this cute Swiss Pixie. Wonderful colour combo. Love the scene you've created. The way you double the fence to give it a more 3-D look is fabulous. Love your card.
Thanks for coming over to play with us at Sweet Stamping Pixies.
