Mo's Challenge # 27

An Ode to Mum!

This week's challenge is a sketch! Peggy has presented us with this great sketch to inspire us.

I loved the image Mo's image of "Mum" and just had to have it as soon as I saw it!  She's paper-pieced with SU! Designer Series paper in Celery, and colored using Copics and Prismacolor pencils.

The sketch allowed me to use up a few of my many Basic Grey DP scraps. I used SU! Celery, Real Red, and Banana CS. The Celery is embossed with the Swirl Cuttlebug folder, and the leaves were cut using the Spellbinders Daisy die. The flower is a gardenia from Blue Hills Studio. The cotton lace and narrow red satin ribbon is from my stash. I added a few red mini brads, and it was done!

We'd love to see your take on Peggy's sketch in Mo's Challenge!
Pick an image by Mo and get started!
