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.

FSS Fall Flowers & Paper Pricking Template


Today I have a card designed with one of the four Fall Flowers and Paper Pricking Template from Fred She Said. I used the Chrysanthemums, but also in the set are Asters, Black Eye Susan, and Sunflower. I love to color images with my Copic markers, but my card today is made with the pre-colored images. I figured I'd give myself a break since I was cutting out so many of them for this arrangement. Sometimes you just need to cut corners. Especially when the pre-colored images are as gorgeous as this.

If you love my card or this image, you'll want to hop on over to Fred She Said Store and pick this set up while it's on sale this week for 40% off. You have a choice of the Digi's or the pre-colored. But heck, for that price, why not get them all!!!

Fred She Said is also the sponser at Creative Card Crew wher the Challenge is FLOWERS!!! Play along with this cahllenge  thius week and you could win some  Gorgeous FREE Fred She Said Images!!

The inspiration for this card came from a Sketch at Basic Grey. I love Basic Grey Papers and when I saw this fantastic Sketch, I knew I had to play along. And to make life even sweeter, I had this perfect image to use for it.

I printed out the Frame Template and pierced all the holes. I was undecided when finished whether to use the printed side or the side that just shows the pricked holes. It can be used either way. I cut the center out of the frame to expose the paper underneath for more contrast. The section with the flowers was a separate frame I printed and cut out to use for the base of the flowers. I off-set it to fit the sketch.

The pearls, cardstock, & ribbon is from Close to my Heart. The DP is Basic Grey.Ambrosia collection.

I used matching Embroidery Floss for the Hand Stitching around the card.

If you’d like to see another card I made with this set, Check out my Blue Asters card. This card was made with the Digi Image that I colored with Copics.
