My Challenge and Sketch Blog

Creatively Artsy is my CTMH blog and this is my FUN Blog.
Here is where I can use any products and just do my own thing. I started out with just one sketch challenge and now I'm hooked. I wish there were more hours in the day.

Trees of the Field Birthday























This card was made using the Delightful Sketch #15 for inspiration.

I also made this card for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday. Their requirement was to make a scene. It's not a big scene, but a scene non the less.

And, it also works perfect for the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge to use green somewhere on your card. I think I've got this covered! I've been wanting to play along with their challenges for some time now.

The Card was made using a tree from A stamp set called "Trees of the Field" from Sweet & Sassy Stamps. It's on sale so you may want to rush over a pick up a set for yourself before it's gone!!!
I always have such a problem making more masculine cards and this sets works perfect for both genders.

The designer papers are from Closed to my Heart, called Veranda. I've used this on several cards and each one looks different. I just love the versatility of their papers.
The ribbon is Garden Green Gorsgrain from CTMH also.
The tree is covered with Faux Flower Soft in two colors of green, a light and a dark.

The Hand Stitching was done using matching embroidery floss.

Such a wonderful card. Really love how you have done the tree....does it have a touch of glitter or texture to it. And what a perfect bow.

The texture on your tree is amazing! I'm still trying to figure out how you did that. :)

Very true, you definitely have the green covered! Great looking tree, the texture is fabulous. Man, I hope it doesn't rub off when you mail it, I know my post office can be brutal on cards. Thanks for participating in the Stampin' Sisters in Christ challenge this week.
