Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #217

This month is just marching on and it seems to be doing double time! End of the school year for us is next week and we have been doing tons of activities (I love our little school) BUT it makes for a very busy schedule.

For this week's sketch from Atlantic Hearts, I decided to flip the design and instead of using a variety of paper's I choose just one.  This super cute cactus paper is from the Prickly Pear Paper Collection and I used Poppy cardstock for my base.  I felt in a fussy cut kind of mood and cut out the cacti that I used for my embellishment from the cactus paper.

The Happy Birthday sentiment is from a retired stamp set called Card Chatter and I stamped it in Saphire Ink.  I made the bow is from the baker's twine found in the Enchantment Ribbon Pack.  I added some sparkle using the Clear Shimmer Brush and a few of the sequins from the Prickly Pear Collection.  Quick and done!

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!
