Pixie Cottage Thinking of you

Well it's the third rainy day in a row and I couldn't be happier!!!!  We've been so busy getting ready for school, it's helped us stay focused.  And we really needed the rain.  I've also had some time to stamp!!!
I have a pixie cottage challenge card for you today!!!  We have a fabulous sketch by  and then a back to school theme.  As always you can do one, the other or both!  I chose to use the sketch.  I suppose you could stretch it to fit the theme:)
I colored Hannah On A Swing by Sandra Hammer as my image with copics.  The papers are green at heart from basic grey.  I distressed the edges and added some stitching.  The sentiment is from basic grey.  The pearl swirls are from want 2 scrap.  I just want to add a side note about them...I ordered a bunch of reasonably priced pearls from them, and they arrived in 2 days and the shipping was super cheap!!!!!  And they are fantastic!  I also added wild orchid flowers and a fun postmark sentiment from Whimsy Stamps.
Check out the rest of the team for lots of back to school fun!

Such a pretty card Erin and I love the girly image. It reminds me of when I used to swing on a tree rope overhanging a field near where I used to live as a child.
