Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #14


Whew! I am tired!  This past weekend I participated in a Street Fair on Saturday and on Sunday I had a small open house to showcase some of the new product that will be available in the new Autumn/Winter Idea Book from Close To My Heart.  At the street fair I made some wonderful new crafty friends and I look forward to meeting them all again this fall when my workshops begin but I was standing outside all day in the hot sun.  Thankfully I had a canopy and was next to a tree but I really, really do not do well in the heat. I do not think I will be a "snowbird" who spends her retirement years in Arizona!

Other big news for me... I had a new member join my Team!  Welcome Karen, we are going to have tons of fun.  It really is exciting to share my passion for paper crafting with others and I love that Close To My Heart makes it so easy! 

Onto this weeks challenge from AHSC.  As always, super cute!  I made my card several weeks ago and it turned out a little different from the sketch but in all honesty this sketch was the inspiration! 

I just realized that I do not have a photo of the finished card!  I made it for my neighbour who was going to a very special wedding anniversary, a 70th!  I just think it is amazing, 70 years together with the one you love!  I am a romantic...

So the finished card did have a small tag tied to the stem of the flower using a bit of bakers twine tied in a pretty bow.  I stamped "Wishing you a Happy 70th Anniversary" on the tag in Lagoon Ink and my apologies for not taking a picture of the card with the tag on it and I am unsure why I didn't.  It was several weeks ago and I was in a bit of rush to get the it done.

For this card I used  some of my horded "Dotty for You" paper, Color-Ready Garden Wooden Shapes Cricut Art Philosophy, and Bronze Glitz Glitter Gel

After I Cricut cut the flowers I inked the edges using Sunset, Smoothie and  Creme Brulee and then rolled them using the Quilling Tool! (love the quilling tool).  I then lightly inked the edges of the Garden Wooden Shapes, Sweet Leaf for the leaves, Smoothie of the butterfly and Sunset for the dragonfly.  I then added some accents using Bronze Glitz Glittter Gel and my card is done.  As mentioned before I did add some baker's twine and a small tag the stem of the flower.

  3. Very nice flowers! The dragonfly was a nice touch too. Cute card!

  4. WOW!!! I am in love with this card! Bright and cheery yet "adult" and feminine all at the same time.

  5. Such a great idea to layer the rolled roses over the stamped ones (just realized that is patterned paper--even better!). Love this card!
