Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #112

So in late April the husband and I started a long list of projects centering around our back deck, the pool, yard, shop, etc. and while many of the projects are well underway and/or completed it has been so frustrating that every single item has been a "snowball" project, meaning that they all just kept getting bigger and bigger mostly due the to the previous owners of our house being idiots who should never, ever, EVER be allowed around power tools or any type of construction. I remember our realtor telling us they were selling with plans to build their dream home and I sincerely hope that they hired a really good contractor because anything they build will most likely fall down and promptly burst into flames like in the movies.  

How did our house pass inspection you ask??  The original construction of our house is really good and it is only things that the last owners "touched/added" that are proving to be poorly constructed and cheaply done with a really good "coat of paint" over top to hide the flaws. Why am I telling you all this you ask??? All this outside work has kept me out of my craft room! Oh how I have missed it in here and I set aside a bit of time today to make a card for AHSC.
This card went thru a few changes as I originally had planned to closely follow the sketch but as I played it became something a little different.

Products I used to make this card are: 
- Creme Brulee Cardstock (which is a retired colour), 
- Dizzy Circle (C1610) stamp set, 
- stamping done using Lagoon, Glacier, Juniper and Sunset Inks
and I finished my card off with some Oceanside and Coral Reef Sequins and a few coloured bitty sparkles from my stash.

Thank you for stopping by, I truly appreciate your comments.  Please 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 might get voted as one of the top 3 cards of the week.
 
Happy Crafting!
