Atlantic Heart Sketch Challenge

I'm so grateful and honoured to have been asked to be the guest designer for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

Michelle designed a beautiful sketch for this week.
Here's the card I made using some of Close To My Heart's awesome products. I started with light, patterned paper from the Yuletide Carol paper pack, sponged with Cashmere Ink and the Designer Creations Ruby Paper Bags for the polka dot paper. 

I stamped the tree from the Best Wishes stamp set in Ruby, Topiary, New England Ivy & Ponderosa Pine Pigment Inks and applied them with our Sponge Daubbers

The "Winter Cheer" sentiment was stamped using New England Ivy Ink on a 1 3/4" scalloped circle that was cut from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge in White Daisy Cardstock and then again at 2" in the Desert Sand Cardstock with some 3-D Foam Tape between the layers. I finished off the card with a Gold Bling Gem and some Bronze Shimmer Trim.

I finished the card off by stamping the inside with the sentiment, "Warm Wishes to you and yours." in New England Ivy Ink, adding a strip of the patterned paper and Bronze Shimmer Trim.

I hope you stop over at Atlantic Hearts and play along.
