"Pixie-licious" - MMSC72

Where did the weekend go? They just never seem long enough as measured by the number of cards I get done of course! Well at least I finished my card for the Midnight Madness sketch challenge - after all, priorities are priorities you know!!!

Here's this week's sketch - the fancy version that I followed. I can't seem to focus on the plainer versions of the sketches. I have to have layers and all sorts of good embellishments on my cards!

This week, I used this wonderful paper from Cosmo Cricket's "Pixie-Licious" collection.  I think the colors here are perfect for Fall but with a contemporary flair to them.  Anyway, I thought this little "pixie" image would be perfect with an autumn sunset effect applied with it. 


The image is from the Flourishes "Kids at Play" stamp set and is heat embossed here. I stamped it in Rich Razzleberry ink and then stamped over it again with Versamark ink and clear embossing powder.  A few prima flowers and some butterflies die cut with SUs Beautiful Wings embosslits and a card is made!

Thanks for stopping by!
