The Pixie Cottage Challenge

Hi! I am back today with a card for The Pixie Cottage weekly challenge.  Now I actually wanted to have this card ready for the OWH challenge that started yesterday (see previous post)  but time got the best of me. (What else is new) So I finished it up this morning!  It felt so good to craft. I have been able to color a little here and there at the store, but have not had time to actually sit down and make a card in ages.  It felt great to be creative again.  I didn't add alot to this card because the actual stamp, The Diner from The Pixie Cottage is a bit busy with all the fun food and things.  The stamp is actually quite big, so my card is a 6x6.  Of course I had to also add a Tilda stamp from Magnolia Stamps.  I fell in love with this paper when i first saw it and have been waiting for the right project to use it.  It is Modern Homemaker from October Afternoon.  Very vintage!  I colored the stamps with Copics and used my white gelly roll marker to highlight.  It is hard to see but I used crystal effects over the refrigerator to give it a glassy effect.
Sentiment stamp is also from The Pixie Cottage


I thought I would use up all the gorgeous paper and not have to worry about what I was doing with the scraps. So I finished up the inside.

I would also like to enter this card in a few other challenges.
Creatalicious Challenge is having a "anything goes"
Stamp with Fun is also "anything goes"
Kaboodle Doodles theme is Lots of Layers
