Sarah's Cards Challenge.

Wow it seems like forever since I was able to enter the challenge at Sarah's Cards but I loved the sketch and was determined to get a page done with some of the papers that I bought from her shop during the summer.

Here is the sketch.

Here is my page using some of the papers from American Crafts City Park line and yes some hand stitching!!
The flowers and balloons were all cut out from the patterned papers I really look at patterned paper now before I buy to see if it is cutoutable (my new word) to make embellishments that co-ordinate.

Do you like the sweet little clouds, my friend Helen has cut me different sizes on her Cricut for me to use as templates and I have embossed them.
A great idea that Helen gave me was to use card stock with glitter patterns (as apposed to plain glitter card) for my title letters and I am thrilled at how they look.

If you would like to have a go at Sarah's Cards challenge go to her blog HERE the closing date is 30Th September so there's still plenty of time.
