My niece and nephew are currently taking karate classes and these photos were taken on the day they tested for their yellow belt. I have to say my niece's "karate face" is hilarious, my nephew definitely seems a a bit more "disciplined" when it comes to this sport. I used this sketch from the Sketchy Thursdays blog but not in time to actually submit it, one of these days I will actually have the time to take part in the challenges I want to.
This was also my first attempt at truly making my own embellishments. I've always loved felt and LOVE Basic Grey's felt flowers. To make this ones I cut shapes out of cardstock with my Silhouette and used them as a template to trace on the felt. I stitched the buttons onto the felt. A good first attempt I think but I'd like to get more detailed next time. I'd also like to find a thinner felt and maybe try it out with foam as well.
