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.

Emma in the Leaves - MMSC70


Even though the temperature was almost 90° yesterday, Fall is right around the corner.

This card was made with a Digi image from Fred She Said called “Emma in the Leaves.” This image is on sale until Monday at 30% off. This reminds me of my 3 yr old granddaughter. Like I said, the temperature yesterday was 89° and she wore her snow boots to my house.


The card was also inspired by the sketch challenge from Midnight Madness. I have honestly never used so many brads on one cards in my life. But, I didn't have enough bitty brads nor tiny pearls for it so I used mini brads. The Fall Leaf Buttons I had in my stash for at least 8 years.

The papers are from a new paper pack from Close to my Heart called “Olivia”. This is the prettiest fall paper CTMH has had in the past few years.

The Hand Stitching was done with matching Embroidery Floss.
