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.

August Gladiola - SSS63

Happy Independence Day!!!

My card today should have been posted yesterday, however, I messed up the coloring of my image because I'm a little pressed for time right now.  So today I took some tome to color it again. It really does look much better in person.

The inspiration for the card came from the Saturday Sketch at The Sweet Stop.  If you love to work with sketches, hop on over and play along with us this week. You have until midnight Friday to add your creation.

The image is the newly released Clear Stamp Set called August Gladiola. It consists of one lovely image and five sentiments.
I LOVE my stamping Toys. My card uses two MS Punches, a Nestie Die and a Cuttle Bug embossing folder.

The Hand Stitching was done with matching Embroidery Floss.
