My Challenge and Sketch 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.

April Daisy - SSS52

I'm trying to get my Mojo Back. This is the first piece I've created in a week and I didn't realize until last night how much I really miss the hand sewing. So, maybe that's a good thing.

My colors look a little off on my monitor. Hope it looks better on yours. The center of the daisies is YELLOW stickles. Maybe it's because the glue is still wet.

My card today was made for the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge #52. It's the Sweet Stop's One Year Anniversary so go on over and play along with the sketch challenge, add the link to your card to Mr. Linky and play along for a PRIZE!!! The sketch challenge is with a SPIN. The spin is buttons and bows.

My card is 5.5 x 5.5 and created with designer papers from Close to my Heart in the colors of Twilight and Sweetleaf. I just love that combination.
The buttons and ribbon is also from Close to my Heart.

The Digi Image is from Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps and is called April Daisy. I added some yellow stickles to the centers of the flowers.
The small flowers were made using various punches.

The hand stitching was done with white embroidery floss.
