Stuck on U sketches

Over at Stuck on U sketches


This sketch perplexed me at first.
That dotted line at an angle, what would I use?

I dug into my Counterfeit Kit and discovered I had only one patterned paper left. Japanese umbrellas.
Then I had a brainwave and recalled my photos of the Japanese gardens at Butchart Gardens in Canada.
Red came into the mix with half a large doiley and that oh so enormous flower.
I found aqua card to match my top in the photo and vellum to soften the whole thing.
This means Challenge #3 at Counterfeit Kits is also done.
Instead of chevrons I have stitched in the same 3 areas.
Keen observers will notice my punched maple leaf and squirrel sticker from Canada too.

another sketch perfectly executed! well done on using that large flower - works so well here and I'd never have thought to use it.- And the stitching is a great way to interpret that dotted line

Great way to use a paper that I never would have been able to figure out a use for-and the red just ties it all together!
