Inside Out

Time for another Pixie Cottage Challenge and hopefully the tutorial I did for them on Saturday may come in handy if some of you want to give it a try. We're joined today by Jay Jay and she's given us a great sketch and theme to work with. The theme she's picked in 'Inside Out'.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Sir Stampalot - Punch It

Crazy 4 Challenges - Paper Flowers

I think I must be a little hooked on this 'Bunny With Roses' stamp that Di Carubia created for the Pixie Cottage. He's just so sweet!

To make my flowers fit in with the blue and yellow theme, I took plain white prima flowers, coloured them with a mustard Promarker first, and when that had dried, I just touched the edges with an indigo Promarker.

I've used the exploding insert on this card too but, to make it look a little different, I used my Martha Stewart punch around the page on the edges. This also matches the panels on the ront of the card. I punched the flowers and added them to smaller punched panels on the inside.

There's oodles on 'inside inspiration' on the challenge blog from my fellow teamies, so please pop over and take a look. I hope we inspire you to enter the challenge too.

Thanks for looking,

Sharon xx
