Thinking of you

Hello Everyone,

There is a fun challenge going on over at Celebrate the Occasion. This weeks challenge is to follow the sketch below to create a project and post by September 4th. Still some time to join in the fun:)


Here is what I came up with:


This is a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card base and base layer at 4 1/8 x 5 3/8. I cut the accent leaves from the Holiday Cakes cartridge at 1 1/2 and the border is from a Martha Stewart border punch. I used some seam binding ribbon, gathered it up and used my sewing machine to make a stitch through the ribbon.

I made this gorgeous flower from a cone coffee filter along with some glimmer mist, let it dry and then use your 1 3/4 scallop punch to punch out a total of 8 scallops. Put a brad through the center of all 8 and gather and pinch it up towards the center of the brad.  I seen this on someones blog and I am so sorry for not remembering who's it was~it turned out beautiful!!  You just gotta try making one~you will be hooked after you do:)

Thanks for visiting!

  1. Nice take on the sketch. I like your Fall pattern colors & especially like the flower. I entered mine today into the sketch challenge. I always find the sketch & color challenges more difficult for me.

  15. Sherrie, this is so incredibly beautiful. It's amazing how perfect the paper, border punch, and accent leaves go together... I struggle mightily finding things to look like they were meant to be together. You do it so wonderfully. :o) The ribbon is fantastic and that flower is a million layers of vibrant love! Excellent work, my friend! :o)

    Hugs and blessings!
