This is for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 72,and nothing like what was in my mind, because putting it together did not come up with what was envisioned, so went back to the start, found this paper from a paper pack in my stash and went from there. 

So it contains, Gina K Wild Lilac, SU Ivory, CTMH Gypsy ink on the flowers, and they were punched with one of the tiny SU punches from a three set.   Did not get out the cricut or dies.  
The Die is a Marianne die and have had forever, but never used.  

The Bling is from Close To My Heart, and the ribbon from stash. 

That's it.   Here is the inside done with an EK punch unearthed this week. 
If you would like to check out the challenge it is here

And the original sketch from Michelle is  below.     So. have some fun, try a card of your own, and post for us to see.  

As you can see actually stayed true to the sketch design this week, except the comment thing,   :)


Was playing around and got out the Gina K Sweet Mango, my dies and then just had some fun. 
The stock is Gina K White, and sweet Mango, except the die cuts.  Always use Close To My Heart for them generally as a 12 x 12 sheet.  Don't open the machine unless cutting a page full. 

The dies used are Decorative Labels Eight and Resplendent Rectangles, and the stamp is from the Bloom With Hope set from SU, coloured with Moment Tangelo, and Olive.  Then decided that it needed edging and of course used the Sweet Mango ink from GKD for it to match.

As always, stash for the ribbon,because love purchasing huge quantities by the yard.   :)

This not being able to colour is having me look back to how started doing cards, and adding the dies which did not have then, and just having fun with them, and actually, am enjoying it.  
This sentiment is the whole stamp set to me.   It says, "When my mind wanders, I usually find it somewhere thinking of you. "  

Of Course the die cut is inside as well to put the message on. 


This is kind of embarrasing because cannot remember where found this as was putzing about on here one day and found on a line on.    Apologies to the person whom got these measurements from.

Not too sure if would do again unless for a gift card holder, and then it would be better.   
This was done with the Close To My Heart Thistle and Pixie Stock, and Confetti Wishes paper.  Ribbon as always from stock as you all know it comes from the fabric stores.  Love going in and seeing what am getting. 

Makes for a bright card especially for a younger person, and am still thinking of putting another die cut on the inside for making  a pocket for a gift card.   Have a die cut inside from the Spellbinders Decorative Labels 8 and so would put about 2/3 of one on top of it.   The original one inside has a small dainty  "Happy Birthday"  from the SU set Bloom with Hope and Thistle ink. 

Enjoy all. 

This week is again with die cuts.  Got out an old colour "buttercup" as waiting for my new yellow, and did it with embossing folder Swiss Dots, and a Cheery Lynn Die. 

Of course the inside has the yellow and a die cut as well, to match, with room for a stamp or personalization.  

Simple, fun to do,  but left some of the die cut not actually glued down, and thinking won't do that again.  And because the battery for the camera died when loading on here, cannot try and add more and do again and post on time. 

So, It shows what it is like not completely down as all the others usually are, and you can see which way you would like to do yours. 

Being on this design team, is my challenge, because doing something to a sketch is foreign to me, and hard to follow. That is my challenge, but often do deviate.  :)


Here is the challenge

Original sketch 

This is the only one of these have made, but had this really bright paper, so die cut the flowers with Cheery Lynn Dies, added brads, and made into an Easter card for her.   Was not going to post, but decided to.   Not likely to make another one or a fussy one at all, but had to try one. 

She loved it and that is what counts, getting happy mail at three years old.  Without a bunch of things on it, the fold was actually quite flat, and mailed great.
