Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #152

Spring break is upon us! and happily so is Spring. Lots of pretty daffodils, crocuses, and snowdrops are popping up everywhere. With all this pretty spring colour as inspiration, I decided to use the lovely Penelope Papers for this week's challenge from Atlantic Hearts.

I really am enjoying the change Close To My Heart made to the new paper packetsm the additional patterned papers really do add to the creative process.

For this card I used the super cute stamp set Housewarming Hello (A1179) and Sapphire ink for the stamping.

My Cricut was deployed for the fancy oval, banner, and the flowers.  I fussy cut the house out and used my watercolour pencils to colour it in.  I stamped the "the the neighborhood" sentiment directly onto the patterned paper (always a nail bitter!).

I swiped the edges of my card base and the background paper with Sapphire Ink to give it a little more dimension.  A few spakles and my clean and simple card in Spring colours is complete.

I love clean and simple cards but sometimes I feel that it's not quite done. If I decide to add more to this card I will be sure to post an update.

Thank you for stopping by, and I truly appreciate your comments.  I hope I have inspired you to come play along with us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

Happy Crafting!
