Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #1!

Way over on the other coast fellow Canadian Close To My Heart Consultants Darla & Michelle have started a new sketch challenge blog!  As you can see Michelle created a super fun sketch that gets you started yet leaves lots of room for you to make it your own.   I decided to make a card using some of the wonderful Chantilly Paper along with Chocolate and Sunny Yellow card stock .  The flowers and sentiment tag are cut out with the Cricut Art Philosophy and I used chocolate ink to edge the flowers and stamp the "Thank You".  This stamp is from the Casual Expressions stamp set and I added a bit of sparkle to my flowers and bow using  Bronze Glitz Glitter Gel.   The super cute metal bow was from the Boutique Assortment that was on the While Supplies Last a few weeks ago and the yellow ribbon was from my stash. I think this turned into a very cute card that was quick and easy.  Congratulations to Darla & Michelle on their new blog and follow this link t
