Guest Designer at Atlantic Hearts this week!

Hello to each one of you! Smile  What a honor & privilege it was to be asked to be the guest designer at the Atlantic Heart’s Sketch Challenge this week. Thank you Michelle for asking me! Smile 

This week, we had the challenge to create with Sketch #183
2016-10-24 guest designer for the week 14397961_790049744469202_1724285981_n
I was excited to give it a try!!

Here’s the card I created this week.

My card creation began, knowing that I wanted to use the stamp set Lovely LeavesLovely Leaves stampMy plan was to create a fall card….LOL…oh well, I’ll have to save that for next time, because this is what my card turned out to be. Smile 

Isn’t it so amazing how we “think” we’ll create something, and our hands totally do something totally different than we image?  The fun & Joy of creating! Smile 

I always enjoy adding texture to the background of the card…and so I ran my Sea Glass cardstock through my embossing machine. 

This time, I also wanted to do some Heat embossing, and gold embossing seemed to be the perfect fit. What FUN it was to pull out my craft heater once again…it may take a little extra time, but it’s so worth the final results.

Did you take notice of the paper I embossed the leaves on?  Guess which paper collection that design is from? 

Ok..I’ll tell you…it’s from our halloween paper collection – Jeepers Creepers!!  You really CAN use CTMH’s papers for any occasion!!
