"Say It with Roses" this Week at Pixie Dust Studio!

Are you ready for Valentine's Day? The Pixies are! We've been working with Kathy's adorable images from the Pixie Dust Studio! I chose "Love is in the Air" from the newest collection, "Cupid's Corner".

I traded her balloon for a long stem rose. Ahhh, the joys of digital stamping!
This week's challenge is "Say It with Roses". Use roses or red flowers on your card or project.

I chose to make my own flowers. I found the tutorial HERE , created by the fabulously talented Leanne! It was easy and fun. I did paint one side of my heart petals with "Glossy Accents" and dried them with my heat gun before wrinkling them up. I think they turned out Gorgeous! I free-hand cut the leaves, touched them up with Copics, and slightly crumpled them.
I hope you'll join us for this week's challenge. Link your card or project HERE for your chance to win a digi of your choice and a STAR award for your blog! Need some Pixie inspiration? Stop by the Pixies' blogs! Their links are in my sidebar. Happy Crafting!
