Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #93

Today I am sharing a card that was created for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge Blog...

This is the current sketch:


It is a great sketch to follow for those of you who like clean classical designs. I created my card by focusing on the two basic design elements - the sentiment label and the image/floral icon.


I created the flowers using stamps from two of the new sets from Close To My Heart ...  A Bunch of Thanks  and the current Stamp of the Month - A Happy Hello. The floral images were then fussy cut and adhered to the card with 3D - Foam Tape. Next I folded the petals of each flower inwards, this gave the flowers more depth and dimension, making them a little more realistic in appearance... the centre of each flower was embellished with a nice sparkly Gold Bling Gem. The stems/leaves were cut from the Cricut Art Philosophy Collection as was the label embellishment. The sentiment I used can also be found in the A Bunch of Thanks stamp set - there are 17 individual images in this set... amazing value! The background was embossed with Diamond Embossing Folder which is one of 4 new folders found in the Seasonal Expressions - Idea Book/Catalogue.


 Don't forget to pop on over to the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and take a peek at all the inspiring ideas the Design Team as for you - play along with us and post your creations based on this sketch too... it is a lot of fun!
