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.

June Rose - SCS Sketch 269

Well here we are again with another snowy day. However, it is so beautiful outside. God sure paints Gorgeous pictures. Doesn't He?
Yes, I have been wanting winter over, and my cards are all designed for Spring, but with such beauty, how can I complain.

Today is Sweet 'n Sassy Digi day over at SNR. The challenge there is to create a card using stripes. So, why not make a card and hop on over to SNR (link above) and show us your card. All instructions will be given there. You will receive a FREE Digi just for playing along and submitting your card by 10:00 PM est. tonight. If you have your card submitted by 10:00 PM est on Monday, your name will go in for a drawing to win $10 in Digi's from the SNSS Store.

Now onto my card. The inspiration for this card came from the Split Coast Stampers sketch 269, and the Challenge of stripes over at SNR.
The Digi  image is called June Rose and was just released the other day at Sweet 'n Sassy. It is in the collection of Birth Month Flowers by our ever talented Leah Cornelius. It was printed from my computer and colored in with Copic Markers.
The edges of the roses were then topped with stickles glitter for just that little bit of sparkle.

The papers, ribbon and brads are from Close to my Heart and the punches used are from Fiskars.
The Hand Stitching around the card was done with matching Embroidery Floss.
