pixie dust scraplift challenge!

in addition to assembling fabulous kits and posting daily inspiration for using them, one of pixie-in-chief kirsty vittetoe's most brilliant plans for the pixie dust paperie blog is to host a monthly challenge. this time the brief is to choose any project from this month's design team offerings and scraplift it. of course the hardest part of this is choosing *WHICH* project...because they are all so very awesome!!! but after much deliberation, i decided to go with emeline's "precious" layout:

i love the cascading rows of patterned paper, each accented with a different punched border for extra interest; i like that the overall soft and romantic feel is punctuated with a slightly funky twist; and i really dig the clusters of small embellishments that emeline has used to create SO MUCH style! of course, i don't scrapbook, as i made (surprise!) a card! :)

(patterned paper: prima, house of three, love elsie + vintage book paper; cardstock diecuts: k&co, making memories, sei; stickers: sandylion, ek success, creative imaginations, making memories, k&co, house of 3; florals: prima, making memories; chipboard word: ek success; brad: my mind's eye; gems: mambi; pins: michaels, joann essentials; butterfly punch: ek success; border punches: martha stewart, fiskars, recollections; ribbon: michaels; inks: colorbox; adhesives: tombow monorunner, gluedots, 3m foam tape)

ok, it's a loose interpretation of the sketch, but i think you can see "the bones"?! my background layers consist of some lovely new prima & house of three papers, but nearly everything else on here was either a scrap or a "leftover" from another project, so despite the abundance of embellishments, this was a weirdly economical way to use up a lot of bits and bobs!

be sure to check out the pixie blog for all the details of this challenge...for example...did i mention there are ♥PRIZES♥??!?!?!
