Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #201


When I first saw the Hello Lovely Papers from CTMH I thought pretty but (ugh) more flowers!  I have a son so I am always wishing for more masculine/boy papers.  Anyways, once you look a little closer at this collection you are gifted with some amazing Art Deco designs straight out of the Great Gatsby!  My mum-in-law loves art deco design and I can't wait to show her this card, I am really happy how it turned out.

Following this week's sketch from Atlantic Hearts, I stuck very close to the sketch but did opt to leave the sentiment off as I really didn't want to cover up the paper.  For an added design element, I cut half an inch off the front of my card base and put the seafoam patterned paper on the inside of the card base.  

Other products I used on this card are the Seaglass Cardstock, Rose Gold Foil Tape and a couple of gold sequins.  The flowers are from the Cricut Art Philosophy (retired) and Artiste (retired) Collections and the leaves are from the new Cricut Flower Market Collection.  I love that I was able to find flowers that mimic the art deco design of the patterned paper!
My picture does not do the papers justice.  I am currently looking for a better free photo editing program that has a bit more control over colour.  The program I was using isn't available anymore and I keep trying out different programs but am not happy yet! 

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

Happy Crafting.
