Good Wednesday morning and happy February 1st!  Wow, how is it February already?!?  Crazy!  Today is the Science Fair at my younger kids’ elementary school, so I am driving them in, which means a little more time for the computer this morningSmile

Anyway, NEW CHALLENGE today at THE PIXIE COTTAGE and our choice this week is CLEAN and SIMPLE and/or sketch.  Now, for those who follow my blog, you know that I am not a CLEAN and SIMPLE crafter for the most part – I usually tend to opt for MORE embellies instead of less or none, but I LOVE a good challenge, and so I used the sketch and kept my card CAS (side note I don’t care for the term “Clean and Simple,” simple seems so pejorative to me, would much rather call it “Clean and Classy.”  But I digress…

I have chosen Smiles and his Cupcake by Alisa Ramirez as my image for today.  You can find this cutie at MICHELLE'S SCRAPBOOKING and MORE.  While we’d love to see an image from The Pixie Cottage Collection at MICHELLE'S SCRAPBOOKING and MORE, it is not required to play in our challenge.  Challenge entries accepted until 11:59pm CST on Tuesday, February 7.  Can’t wait to see what you createSmile

I colored Smiles and his Cupcake by Alisa Ramirez with Copics.  Used 2 of my new colors for the cupcake (V22, V28), which I combined with V20 and V25 (from last year’s new sketch release).  I used Bazzill and Core-dinations CS, Pebbles DP and Taylored Expressions metallic CS.  Image, backing and sentiment tag cut with Nesties.  Sentiment from Verve and ribbon is organdy from JoAnn.
