Just Because Atlantic Hearts Sketch #173

Wow....it's been a wild, crazy, fantastic summer.  I am back in the USA...and my craft room.  My last post was from Japan - I was there living in Iwaki, Fukishima for over two months.  My son is a teacher there, and I helped full time in the school where he teaches. What a marvelous experience.

Michelle at Atlantic Hearts was very understanding about my absence, and I am thrilled to be back and starting up again as part of the Design Team for this great sketch challenge blog!

So AHSC #173

My card uses quite a few different Close To My Heart papers (La Vie En Rose, Penelope, Enchantment Fundamentals), and the sentiment from the Oodles of Doodles set was heat embossed.  I used the Artiste cartridge to cut the 3.5" circle from White Daisy card stock, backed it with a piece of La Vie En Rose paper, and adhered that panel to a black card base. Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, Enchanted Garden.
What a great sketch!  Go to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and in the fun creating!



  1. Really love the grey and pink color combination...stunning card.

  2. Welcome home! How awesome that you were able to help out at the school. What an experience! :) This card is awesome. The sequins you chose to use are the PERFECT touch of cheer. Great job~! ~Ali
