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.

Sew Long Flowers - Tuesday Throwdown Challenge


I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend and I hope you found a little time to honor our fallen soldiers and pray for the safety of those still  fighting for us.

This is the final week as the May Guest DT Member at Tuesday Throwdown Challenge Blog. I had such a great time and the month really flew by too quickly.

The Challenge this week is to make your own Embellishments. The sponsor this week is My Grafico, who offered us the wonderful Digi images I used on my card.

The design inspiration came from the Stamp, Scrap and Doodle Challenge Blog.

The papers I used are from the Close to my Heart Sweetheart Paper Pack. The flowers were printed in various sizes then colored with Copic Markers, cut out and layered. The leaves are from a punch which I texturized with my piercing tool and added color with my copic markers.

The Hand Stitching is done in my own design with matching Embroidery Floss.

Other Challenges this card was made for:
Card Makin Mamas - Use your scraps
Just Add Ink - Fussy Cutting
Stamp Something - Use a sentiment
2 Sisters - Anything Goes
Kraftin' Kimmie - Hand Stitching
My Sheri Crafts  - 1Button, 2dp's, 3 flowers
My Grafico - Anything Goes
