"No Lion!" ;) It's Release Day at PDS!

Hi! YAY for Friday!  That means it's release day at Pixie Dust Studio with the new Pixie of Oz release!  You might have seen a few sneaks and we're so excited that today the wonderful Pixie of Oz series is available in the shop :)

Introducing .... Courage the Lion!

For today's card, I tried something a little different - a "sepia" no coloring technique.  My 12 y/o daughter had some of her friends over making a faux Constitution and Bill of Rights for a school project and we had to do 'tea-dying'.   On a whim, I decided to try it with a digi image printed on white PTI cardstock and love the look that it had ~ so I continued the vintage, circa 50's feel to this one with muted colors of cream and beige.  The ribbon is one I have had from scrapbooking and overall, this was an interesting technique to try! 

Here is the entire release in one glance ..........

And another look :)
