Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #265

Long time since I have participated in the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!  I am excited that my life has settled a little and I can jump back in!

I used the Adventure Fundamentals for the background of this card and a bit of twine and stamped the roses using the Beautiful You stamp set and Thin Cuts!

The Beautiful You stamp set intimidated me at first but I found if I put all the stamp on the blocks as they are on the carrier sheet and keep the orientation it is easy to stamp all three layers!  I used Lemon ink and second generation Saffron ink for the roses and Sweet Leaf for the leaves.

Thin cuts made it so easy to cut and stamp with NO fussy cutting!  In fact these were already cut and in the envelope from a previous project so I just slipped them out and used them!

I hope you join us at Atlantic Heart Sketch Challenge and share your interpretation of the sketch!
