Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #283

Didn't know if I was going to get this card done! I've had a tummy bug since the weekend and it has me feeling a little low.  For this week's sketch from Atlantic Hearts, I decided I wanted to try and really follow the sketch and thought the 'Tis the Season Paper Collection would be a good compliment.  Honestly, I'm still not 100% happy with this card but I wanted to participate.

I decided to use a retired Colonial White card base to soften and warm up the tones of the card.  I find Colonial White really brings out gold and green tones. 

As mentioned I used the 'Tis the Season Paper Packet and the sentiment is from the Tis the Season - Cardmaking which I stamped in Sapphire Ink to bring out the touches of Sapphire in the patterned paper.  I then mounted the sentiment onto Sapphire cardstock and used Fern cardstock to mount my patterned paper and to create the pinecone accent which can be found in the Cricut Artistry Collection

The super cute bow from the Cricut Flower Market Collection is cut out in Candy Apple (a NEW CTMH Colour and I love it!) and I finished it off with a Gold Glitter Gem. The grey and gold ribbon is sadly retired.

I would love to say this was a quick and easy card for me but this week it took a little longer than expected.  I am happy with the results and think I will include it in my upcoming Christmas Card workshops.

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

Happy Crafting!
