"in the pink" birthday card by lauren bergold

do you love sketches as much as i do? i find them to be a brilliant way to "jump start" creativity... it's like setting off on a trip with a really good map! one of my favorite sketch artists is our own dear pixie-in-chief kirsty vittetoe, who often provides one for our pixie challenge that begins on the 20th of each month. the one i've used for this card was from the may challenge, but i've used it several times since then!

for this card i've used two of the girls' paperie "kitch" papers from august's PICNIC BASKET kit, along with a scrap of cosmo cricket "remnant" and a tag i cut from the reverse of pink paislee's "map" paper. i've incorporated a few other pink scraps from previous pixie kits, and mounted everything on soft pink cardstock.

the gingham ribbon, webster's chipboard button and twine, girls' paperie cameo, cosmo stickers and crinkled seam binding are also from this month's kit. thanks to the sketch, all i had to do was assemble my ingredients, and i could jump right to the fun parts: punching, inking, outlining, hand- and machine-stitching! gotta love that, right?! ;)

why not grab a pixie kit and a pixie sketch and see where it takes ♥YOU♥?! i bet it'll be somewhere nice!!!

Kirsty's Note -
That is just too sweet and pretty!!! Thanks Pixie Lauren!!!!
