From The Heart Stamps - Sketch 80

My Guest Designer two month term at From The Heart Stamps is almost at an end - next week will be the last sketch I take part in. It's a fab little sketch this week and don't forget that you can flip it and add extra embellishments, just as long as the sketch is clear and you've used a From The Heart Stamps then its good to enter!

The twist this week is to use a handmade embellishment but you don't need to add the twist if you don't want to. Challenge closes on 28 September at 10pm CST and each entrant will receive a $1 voucher to use either towards a digi from the store or can be saved up and used to snag a free stamp!

I've used Birdbrain Balloon (which is becoming one of my favourites), coloured with Promarkers and watercolour pencils for the sky. Papers are from Funky Hand - left over from making a wordbook - I really don't like to throw pretty papers away when I can reuse them so easily! I've made the little pin with tiny beads and some sequins. The trim is from the scrap store and is actually upholstery trim which makes it easy to glue down!

I've added some faux stitching around the edges of the panels and the card is complete! Good luck with the challenge and don't forget to use a FTHS image!

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Cutie Pie Challenge: Cute with Shades of Autumn
Fitztown Challenge: Animals with Digital Elements
Lexi's Creations: Autumn Colours
