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.

Winter Emma and the Chickadee




Here is a card made using the fabulous pre-colored image from Fred She Said called Winter Emma and the Chickadee. She comes in five different colors, or as a digi to color yourself.
The inspiration for this card started with  sketch 73 from Sunday Sketch and Stash.


The papers are old retired Close to my Heart Papers from the Lucky Collection. 
Snowflake embossing folder was used for the two narrow stripes as well as a variety of Spellbinder dies. PLUS, I just got a new dies from Memory Box called Snowflake Corner.
The Hand stitching was done with white embroidery floss.

Other Challenges for this card:

Smudgy Antics - Use scraps
Anything Goes - Just good friends
Digital Tuesday - Layers
