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.

My card today is made using the yellow and orange pre-colored Poppies images.
I used a sketch from this weeks's Anything Goes Sketch Challenge.
The Papers, pearls, stick pins and color ready seam binding are all from Close to my Heart.
The hand stitching was done with matching embroidery floss.

It's hard to tell on the photo, but most of the flowers had been printed a second time and fussy cut then layered with foam tape.

Your secret word on my blog is "to"
Your next stop on the hop is Robin’s blog.
