Do you smell carrots?

Small update - I got voted out of the MFT Idol contest, but I wanted to thank everyone for their votes!! I'm actually a little relieved - the stress of trying to compete with those talented ladies was really tough to deal with, so now I can relax and just play!


For today's card, I decided to try this week's TCP Tuesday sketch challenge. I used an image from the Spring Fling set (isn't that carrot car too cute??) and a sentiment from Beans & Bunnies & Peeps, Oh My!. Although it didn't come out exactly how I wanted it, I still love it, especially the flower!

I hand stitched the white parts and machine stitched the zig zags (I just happened to have a spool of variegated thread that's yellow, orange and green!). I popped up the wheels and colored the image with Copics. For the flower, since I didn't have one big enough, I took 2 Prima hydrangeas, cut the petals apart, and glued them behind the circle. I love the look of it and will definitely be trying it again in the future. TFL!

Other materials used: green cardstock - Stampin' Up!; white cardstock - Georgia Pacific; patterned paper - K&Co. Berry Sweet pad.
