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.

FSS Hearts & Roses Valentine Card


I'm finally getting caught up with all of my stamping obligations and it feels so good!!!

Here is a Valentine card made using the Fred She Said Hearts and Roses pre-colored image. I love this set because the pre-colored images come in 7 different colors for any occasion, or a digi that you can color yourself. I added the Happy Valentines Day but you can add any sentiment or non at all.

The inspiration for this card started with the January Verve sketch, week 1, that the Heart worked perfectly with.

The paper I used are all  CTMH from the Roxie Paper Packet, except for the green punched strip. That was left over scrap from a Christmas card but it worked perfectly for this card.

The Hand stitching around the card was done with matching embroidery floss.
