Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #122

Busy days! I have been working on several projects that are going to be super fun this fall AND I been trying to have tons of summer fun with the family. Busy, busy days... Thankfully AHSC is never too busy for me and keeps providing sketches that help stimulate my creative mojo, often pulling me outside my normal "style. This weeks challenge did this for me pushing me to try something a little different and I really like the results! 

For this card I used Pacifica cardstock which I heavily sanded as my base and Pacifica Ink for my sentiment. The sentiment is from the stamp set "Just to Say" which can be found in the Artfully Sent Cricut Collection where you can also find the cloud shape.  The kite is cut using the new Artistry Cricut Collection! I cut the kite's blue and white tail pieces using blue and white Shimmer Trim and my Triangle Border Punch, if you flip the punch over and line it up from the back you can put the shimmer trim in the punch and make tons of little triangles. It is a bit fiddly but so worth it. Using a journaling pen I hand drew in the kite's details. The blue houndstooth and green polka dot papers are both from the Zoe paper collection.
