Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #213

Image
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! I love quick, simple cards and CTMH really does make it easy.  Thank you for sto

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!
