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.

Colorful Creations Sketch Challenge - Pumpkins and Sunflowers

I have a fabulous sketch challenge and card to share with you today. I had been asked to be a Guest Designer this week at Colorful Creations Sketch Challenge. I feel so honored to be asked to be a  part of the  fabulous designers of this group today. Here is the sketch. Come on over and play with us.

For my card, I used a gorgeous pre-colored image from Fred SheSaidcalled Pumpkins and Sunflowers.  The pumpkin image was printed three times then two of them were fussy cut and layered with foam tape for lots of dimension.  The sunflower at the bottom was actually from a scrap left over from a card I made a few days ago. That was also fussy cut and layered with foam tape.

The papers, ribbon and pearls are from Close to my Heart.

The green swirlies at the bottom of the card were cut with the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge which is exclusive to CTMH.

The worrd "Thankful", also from the pumpkins and sunflowers digi set is attached to the card using a "Foundry Pin Clip" from CTMH.

The Hand Stitching around the card was done with matching Embroidery Floss.

A few other challenges this card was made for:
Crafts 4 eternity - Anything Goes
Frosted Designs - Fussy cutting
