FSS Light Blue Hydrangeas

Welcome to my Blog. It's been one heck of a summer. Scorching hot weather and absolutely no time for creating. I’ve been in withdrawal. Not only from creating, but from my stitching.

So, here is the first of many, I hope!!! But, be warned, I may start sneaking Christmas in here too!!!

My card was inspired by the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge.

This card was made using the new release from Fred She Said called Hydrangea Bouquet. You can purchase this as a Digi to color yourself, or as a sets of 7 colored jpegs. I’ve used one of the colored images. Why change perfection!!!
I also used the Ornate Butterfly Digi and colored them with copic markers.

The papers are all from Close to my Heart and the Hand Stitching was done with matching embroidery floss.

I added a little of the Stardust Glitter Glitz, also from CTMH, to the tops of the flowers and some light green sparkles to the butterflies and tiny blue sparkles to the flourish that was cut out with the NEW Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge from Close to my Heart.
This cart can be purchased as a set with chipboard shapes and three stamp sets that all match cut outs from this cartridge. If you'd like more information about this cart, just send me an email. Or, you can see what all is in it or purchase it at the link above .

Here are a few other challenge blogs I made this card for:
All Sorts - You've been framed
CMC Copic Challenge - Winged Things
Ellephantastic - Add some layers
Paper Creations Ink - Show us your flowers
Paper Playtime - Anything Goes
The Pink Elephant - Stitching
Victorine Originals - Birthday
