Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #165



Unfortunately, I have had need for sympathy cards recently.  I thought the new Florence papers would be suitable.  
Florence

The flower was cut with my Cricut and the Artistry Cartridge that is sold only by Close to My Heart.  The With Sympathy is cut with the Wild Card cartridge that I had in my stash. The finishing touch was the Bling Gems Gold Assortment in the center of the flower.

The sketch that inspired me is this week's Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #165.  I rotated the sketch and added the flower. We would love for you to join us! Share your interpretation of the sketch.

Atlantic hearts Sketch Challenge #163

I am still in Graduation card mode and hopefully this is the last one!  Magical paper was on my mind and the scraps I had left were perfect for this card!  I love how colorful the paper is and how it is makes it a non-traditional graduate card!
Magical paper 


The stamp I used is new in the Seasonal Expressions 2!  Smarty Pants! This a great graduation stamp but the sentiments lend it to many other congratulations situations!

The sketch I used is for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!  We would love to see what you create with it!

Summer Fun

Summer fun!  The kids were baking in Texas where it was 102 degrees while Mommy was enjoying a cool 79 degrees at Disneyland at the Close to My Heart Convention.

I posted both layouts because I only changed a couple of things but you can see how different they look!  One is for my girls' book and the other for my boys' book.

The patterned paper is from Jackson which is retired but gotta use that stash.  The  summer and fun were cut with Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  The sun came from Artbooking Cricut Cartridge!

Our Marvy® Uchida® LePen™ Journaling Pen is awesome for doodling on the layout Plus doing journaling!

The only bling I added was the sequins left from a card kit and used different colors on each layout.  We have some awesome new sequins in the Seasonal Expressions 2 that went live on Sunday! Check it out!

All the patterned paper is from the Magical paper pack, which I am sure you can guess is great for Disney!! 

I cut the circle with stars on it with the Cricut using a free shape. 

The Globe is from the Teacher Appreciation stamp set.  

The congratulations and Sentiment and diploma are all from the NEW Seasonal Expressions 2 Idea Book and is on the NEW graduation set called Smarty Pants!
