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.

Red Peonies in a Jar and Corner Peony

Welcome to Day 1 of a week long fabulous sale on the Peony in a Jar and Corner Peony Digi's and Pre-colored images over at Fred She Said. You have until June 19th at Midnight EDT to pick these up for 40% off. You need to check out all the gorgeous colors in these sets.

My card today is made with both sets. The fabulous thing about Digi's is the fact that you can print them any size. The original image of the Peony in a Jar has just one flower. BUT, I printed out two more in smaller sizes to make it look like there are three flowers in that jar. Then I printed out the Red Corner Peony for the lower right corner to follow the sketch.

The beginning inspiration for this card came from a Sketch at Ribbon Carousel challenge blog  The papers are from the Wings collection from Close to my Heart. I used the reverse Juniper sides of the two papers but they just looked too plain with this image that I ran them through the cuttlebug embossing folder.

I hand stitched around the card with red Embroidery Floss to help make the images POP!!!
I then added Red Sparkles, also from CTMH, in all the corners.
