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.

FSS Ornament #2

This week Fred She Said Store if sponsoring the Betty Bee’s Buzz Challenge Blog. You can pick up a freebie from Fred, so, why not play along and get a chance at winning a $20 gift certificate for the Fred She Said Store. You will be amazed at how much you can get for so little money.

My card today was inspired by this weeks sketch over at The Critter Sketch Challenge Blog. But the main inspiration came from this gorgeous Christmas Ornament #2. The image comes with or without the Holly.

I printed the ornament twice, colored them with Copic Markers then cut the ornament out of the one, used foam tape and layered it for more dimension. I added some red stickles to the red part of the ornament so it looks like little red beads.

My papers are all from Close to my Heart. I used lots of punches, Cuttle Bug Embossing Folder and Nesties.

The Hand Stitching was done with Red Embroidery Floss.
