H2H Sketch Challenge....

This week over at the H2H Blog, they're challenging everyone with a sketch!!!

Here's the sketch....


Here's my take on it...


My niece is having a birthday next month and my sister wants me to make the invites...my sister wanted it to be Mary Engelbreit themed since this is probably the last year that my sister will be able to decide since my niece is getting to the age where she has "demands"....lol

The flowers were done with punches...even the yellow flower...I punched an 1-1/4" circle then I cut little triangles out leaving the "petals"...I created the shading with our CTMH Blending Pen and White Daisy Ink...the gingham pattern is Black Cardstock cut into tiny 1/2" squares (really wished I stocked up on Black Gingham B&T before we retired it...)...all the centers of the flowers are Dimensional Elements - On Target covered with Cardstock.

The "sentiment" is from one of the NEW stamp sets coming out September 1st....the "to a" is handwritten with a My Legacy Writer (LOVE these things).

Don't forget to go over to the H2H Blog and play along!!!

Wow, Katy, I thought that those shapes were real embellishments, then I read how you had shaded them...FANTASTIC! I would have never known that they were colored and shaded had I not read your description. Outrageous! Thanks for playing along with us at Heart 2 Heart Challenges!
