Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #221

Image
My son has been doing a vision therapy program for the past several months and next week is his last session!  He has come a long way and I wanted to make a special card for the therapist who has been so kind and patient with him.  Granted I have a pretty great kid but still, an hour a week of one-on-one therapy with a very active 9-year-old has got to try anyone's patience!

Cue this weeks Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and I have the perfect inspiration for my Thank You card.  I decided to use the Prickly Pear Papers for their bright happy colours and paired it with Tangerine and Blossom Cardstock.

I wanted to stick with the design but also wanted to go a little outside to box and started searching through my Cricut images...  I decide on the flower overlay and ended up cutting it out slightly smaller a second time in the patterned paper so that I could do a bit of paper piecing. (Yay! for old school techniques!) Both the thank you and flower cutouts are from the Cricut Artist…

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #219

With all the Canada 150 celebrations, house guests, and lots of time spent outside I almost forgot about this weeks challenge from Atlantic Hearts! Thankfully it is a super cute and easy sketch.
I created my banners from the Little Dreamer Paper Packet and mounted them on Lemon Cardstock. Using the Little Dreamer Cardmaking Stamp & Thin Cuts I quickly cut out my unicorn and stamped him in Glacier, Lagoon, Lemon, and Tangerine Inks.  I did add a little of the Clear Shimmer Brush forgetting that it can change the ink colours slightly but it did add some shimmer!  I stamped my sentiment in Lagoon and added some retired extra thick twine in Thistle to finish off my card.

Like I said super cute and easy!  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!

Happy Crafting.
