Atlanic Hearts Sketch Challenge #66

Atlantic Hearts
Sketch Challenge

Hello everyone, have you missed me?  I have been on the computer very little latley,  I have had a lot going on in the family, and family comes first.  My husband was not well and we had a death in the family, then it was my turn to be sick. Well any who, I am back.  I hope to start posting more often, I really want to get my Close To My Heart business off the ground, generate more interest... In the meanwhile...this is a challenge week, and I have to tell you I really enjoyed, making this card, it was fairly easy to put together, the sketch is simple and sweet, and I love the colors.  Win win situation..........

I used Artiste cartridge for the flowers, cutting them at 2 1/2", and 2' and 1 1/2 inches. I then curled up each petal to give it some dimention.  I used the Sky Blue paper and ink (which will be retiring at the end of this month, so hurry if you want to get it) from Close To My Heart.

I also used the stamp set "The happy Couple" (D1539)  for the sentiment.  The paper pack is "Ariana" X7179c, which too is retiring July 31st. BUT... Wait til you see all the WONDERFUL stuff in the NEW Close To My Heart Catalog.  Lets just say My cricut is gonna be hummin :)

I hope you like my project for today and I would love for you to take part in this challenge as well as check out the other Design Team ladies and give them some love.  Here is the link.
