Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #28!

So to keep with my current theme of "life has been a bit challenging as of late" my camera has decided to be cranky and the card that I was going to post is currently not available... But I do have a large stash of cards that I haven't posted yet that I made for some recent workshops! 

As always Michelle and Darla of AHSC created a super cute sketch for us to work with and while this card doesn't follow the sketch exactly it is in a similar style.

This card was created using the "Quick Cards - Bright All Night" Stamp (which can be found in the Hostess Rewards Stamp Set section of your Autumn/Winter Idea Book.)  Other materials I used were White Daisy and Twilight Cardstock, Twilight and Cranberry Ink, Cranberry Twine, Stardust Glitz Glitter Gel, a piece of scrap ribbon and a bling button from my stash.

I love the Quick Card stamp sets because they are just that, quick!  To make this card,  I stamped the image and then corner rounded the white daisy cardstock and sponge inked the edges in Cranberry ink.  I then heavily sanded the Twilight cardstock using my sanding block.  After I put the card together, I then used the Stardust Glitz on the trees and some of the snowflakes for accent.  Unfortunately it is hard to see in the picture but on the trees, after I applied the glitz gel I then used the tip of my piercing tool to drag the glitter onto the branches to make "snow" on the boughs. 

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! I hope you get inspired and decide to come play along!  We would love to see what you create and you may be voted into the top 3 cards of the week. 
Happy Crafting!
