White Hollyhocks

Here is day 2 of my Hurricane Irene power outage creations.
This color combination is one of my favorites. It's Twilight and sweetleaf. All papers, ribbons, half pearls, stick pins, and tag cut from the exclusive Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge are all from Close to my Heart.

The image is from the Fred She Said Hollyhock collection. These  images come in a digi form or 8 pre-colored versions. I had so much fun playing with five different colors.

The sketch is from the Verve August sketch challenge.

The Hand Stitching was done with white Embroidery Floss.

Other Challenges this card is submitted to:
Stampin' B's - Use a clip or a pin.
Cuddly Buddly - Vintage, Distressing & Flowers
Sisterhood of Crafters - Flower Power
Stamp Something - Get Your Digi On
All Sorts - Blue & Green
