Hello to each one of you! 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!
This week, we had the challenge to create with Sketch #183
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 Leaves. My 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.
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!
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!!
I wanted to find the perfect wording for this card. It needed to be “script” (in my mind) and it needed to be small enough to fit at the bottom of the card…and that led me to our beautiful NEW stamp set – Pretty Poinsettia…take a look.
Now it’s YOUR turn! Head on over to the Atlantic Heart Sketch Challenge & join in the fun!! I look forward to seeing what you created with Sketch #183
