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.

Dreams Come True


I haven't created a card in some time and I'm running out of time. I am making Close to my Heart cards for a Charity Auction for Operation Smile. So, I need to get busy. This is one of the cards I finished this morning. 

I used a sketch from Midnight Madness sketch challenge from last week for my inspiration.

Everything used here is from Close to my Heart. The Stamp Set is called Dreams Come True. I used Universal Backgrounds for the script behind the flowers.

The Buttons are from the Pink Assortment. I also used Half pearls, and tiny sparkles. The strip above the butterfly is from the Color Ready Kraft Borders.  Glitz Glitter Gel was used around the edges of the flowers for a little sparkle.

The Hand stitching was done with matching Embroidery Floss.
