A Sketchy Thursdays / Frosted Designs Challenge!

Hello my Scrappy Friends! I'm so happy to be posting about a challenge I completed!!!! As you know it has been hard for me to find time to do a challenge but I am so happy to say I was even able to combine three challenges into one!!! Whoop Whoop for me!!!!

Challenge 1- Sketch challenge 1.5 from Sketchy Thursdays.
Challenge 2- Was to use only the colors blue and silver and it was a prompt challenge from Scrappy Chics.
Challenge 3- Frosted Designs challenge was to use only card stock "no pattern paper".

You have no idea how hard it was to use only blue and silver! Then to add no pattern paper was so hard for me! I get my stamps out and stamp the pattern for me!

Here's my page!

A Few closeups-




I really loved this challenge and had started it in the morning and couldn't wait to get home from church so I could finish my page! The picture is of my mother! I'm so Blessed to have the Best Mom! She is so beautiful inside and out!

Here's the sketch-


Thanks for visiting!

Hi Kim!

Happy New Year my friend! I hope you had a fabulous holiday season! I have been out of blogland for a few weeks so I have a lot of catching up to do. Your mom is stunning! And what you did with her photo is equally as stunning! The colors work wonderful together and I love the stitching and embellishments you added. What a top notch project Kim! I am going to check out your other projects, it looks like you've been having some fun!
