Clearly Inspired Challenge - Sketch

It is time for Clear Dollar Stamps Clearly Inspired Challenge. Today is a sketch challenge. Check it out. 5 cards will be chosen to highlight for a week and one person will receive a prize from random drawing. Come play today. You do not have to own Clear Dollar Stamps to play.

I flipped the sketch sideways. I used the new release WELCOME TO PARENTHOOD and an older release PEONY from CLEAR DOLLAR STAMPS.

I paper pieced the flower petals only and used markers on the other parts of the flower. I stitched in black around the flower to make it stand out more. I also stitched around the edge of the nestie and card base edge. I just love Martha Stewart's new punches. I used the Loops one and punched bother sides of this strip, I love the result. Glazed brads finish it off.

Thank you for visiting me today.
