My craft room has been busy...and once again I've neglected the blog.  Made 28 baby invitations for a friend hosting a shower, made several anniversary cards, made 6 birthday cards for late June early July birthdays...My dream would be to be able to create a card binder for the year with special cards ready made for sending each month. Anyone else do that?

When I got back from Japan, I was greedy for some new supplies. So for today's card, I managed to use quite a few of them.   The inspiration is Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #323.  Being on their design team really keeps me posting on the blog. And I love using Brandi and Michelle's wonderful sketches.  I didn't add the flower on the center panel in the sketch since I had a stencil flower placed in that spot anyhow.

Difficult to photograph the shimmer on the smile sentiment. I stacked three together for dimension. The flower stencil panel and the strip sentiment were popped up with foam tape.

Products used today are:
Altenew Floral Garden stencil with Distress Oxide inks:spun sugar, abandoned coral, crushed olive
Gina K designs smile sentiment and die set
