Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #8

Pink!  I think I am in a pink mood...  

I have been trying (with success) to create more boy or neutral cards over the past few months but this card had to be girly!  Just look what Michelle of  Atlantic Heart's Sketch Challenge has created to inspire us!  As I said it had to be girly! 

Given that it is such a clean and simple sketch I wanted to add a little bit something more and decided to make my card a square and cut my base for a 4x4 card.   This way I felt I was adding another element to the card with detracting from Michelle's sketch.

Using Smoothie cardstock as my base I added the chevron patterned paper from the For Always paper packet.

I love to make flowers using my Cricut Art Philosophy and Artiste Collections but Close To My Heart also has paper flowers available in their Just Blooms collections.  The white flowers are from the Petals Paper Flowers (currently in the While Supplies Last) and the smoothie flowers are from the Paradise Paper Flowers.

I inked all the edges including all the flowers with smoothie ink and finished my flower off with a sweet leaf big brad and a bit of sweet leaf ribbon from the Green Designer Ribbon collection (currently on While Supplies Last).

For my sentiment I used some of the super cute felt letters from a now retired product and of course they are in smoothie!  Close To My Heart has retired the felt alphabets but they do have several options currently available that are adhesive-backed alphabets using fun mediums like cork, epoxy and glitter...

Thank you for stopping by and I truly appreciate your comments! Follow the link to check out all the great artwork submitted to the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!

Happy Crafting!


  1. I really like this card as a is great and the flower just pops. I really like the color choices.

  2. The for always paper pack is so versitile!! Love your flower and the felt words. Cute card...I rarely change my card size but it does make the flower much more front and center :)

  3. So simple and cute, must explore more sizes of cards. and apparently check the while supplies last list once more lol
