Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #213

I think in celebration of the sunshine finally arriving on the West Coast (we have had a very long, wet, Winter and Spring)  I instantly saw "sunshine card" when I looked at this weeks sketch from AHSC.  Using my trusty Cricut and all the great images from the CTMH Cricut Collections, I choose the sunbeam overlay from Artbooking and the Hello is from Artiste (retired) and the Sunshine is from Flower Market.

I used the wood grain paper from the Rustic Home Fundamentals, the yellow stripe paper is from the Whimsy Fundamentals and the words are cut out using Emerald and Tangerine Cardstock. The cut little butterflies are from the Dreamin' Big Cardmaking Bundle (which is unfortunately now retired).  I stamped the butterflies using Emerald and Tangerine inks and lightly sponged the edges with the opposite colour for contrast.  A few bitty sparkles and my tribute to the sun is complete!

So I tried to follow this weeks sketch from Atlantic Hearts, I really did, but kinda veered off a little but just a little bit.

Wanting to keep this card clean and simple I decided to use the Cricut Flower Market Collection for my key elements. I debated adding more flowers and layers but decided to keep it simple as I didn't want to overwhelm the pretty heart paper.  Other products I used for this card are the new Little Dreamer Paper Packet, lagoon, thistle, saddle and sweetleaf cardstocks, the blossom polka-dot paper from the Adventure Fundamentals (pink flowers), and from my stash a piece of thistle striped ribbon and a bow made from thistle extra thick twine.  A few swipes of the Clear Shimmer Brush to my flower centers and a few Bitty Sparkles and my card is complete.

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

Happy Crafting!
