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.

Love Blossoms - Just My Sketches

I found this great sketch over at "Just My Sketches". The idea is to use their sketch and one of their song titles for inspiration. I had already started making the components of this card with some images I've had for a while now and thought it would make a great wedding or anniversary card. However, I printed things out slightly larger than I had intended and my sentiments did not work with it. I really should have made the card 6x6 instead of 5x7. It turned out totally different than I had imagined but sometimes this happens.

The images are from Fred She Said . I'm a flower addict and these are just so beautiful!

The background paper is from the Caboodle paper pack from Close to my Heart and I cuttle bugged it, then ran my embossing pad over it and applied clear EP to it. What a difference that one extra step makes.

The corners were punched with a corner punch and a tiny half pearl added to each corner and a bigger pearl in the center of the big flower.

The Hand stitching was done with matching Embroidery Floss.

Oh wow...this is beautiful...so love all the details. I must try embossing and then putting embossing powder over the top. Sounds like a brilliant effect.
