My Challenge and Sketch Blog

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.

Winter Basket - SSS85


Here is one of my favorite Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Images. It's called Winter Basket.  I printed it the size I needed and colored it with Copic Markers.

The inspiration for this card came from this weeks sketch over at The Sweet Stop. If you need some weekly inspiration, try the sketches there. They are some of the best.

The papers I used are some retired Christmas papers from Close to my Heart.
I also used one of my new Nesties called Beaded Ovals.
The Hand Stitching was done with Red Embroidery Floss.

Other Challenge Blogs this card was made for:
ABC Christmas Challenge - "Y" is for Yuletide
AI FActory - Winter
Glitterbabes - Buttons
Twisted Thursday - Holidays with Buttons and Bow
