Atlantic Hearts Sketch 147

A great sketch this week at Atlantic Hearts Sketch ChallengeMy first thoughts were to use the Botanicals set (Close To My Heart) with some solid pieces...but the contrast was wrong. So I used the leafy stamp for those.  The flower blocks were stamped and clear embossed before water brushing in the color with Canary, Pixie, Glacier and Pear.  I cut a flower on the Cricut from Pixie card stock, and added some Liquid Pearl to the center.  Butterflies were punched with a Martha Stewart punch. The leafy panels were simply stamped with Pear ink and water brushed with same.  The yellow patterned paper is from the Babycakes set.

Of course, now that I look closely, I realize I missed a small right panel...sigh.  But I think I still kept the intention of the sketch. 

Please be sure to check out the amazing sketches from the design team on Wednesday.  It is so delightful to see how many unique variations can be created from the same sketch!! And link up your own version. 



  1. So gorgeous, Dena. What a special card. It's just lovely! I find yellows hard to work with but you added it in just the right amounts in just the right places.

  2. So beautiful! Love the look of this and the papers you created...such a soft feminine look...I love it!
