Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #30: Happy Anniversary

posted in: Cards | 2

I’m back for another Atlantic Hearts Challenge!  I missed my turn last time because we were out of the country, and I’m happy to be designing again.  This week’s sketch is definitely a challenge.  It suggests a different size and shape of card than I usually work with, but I was up for the challenge.  In fact, I was on a bit of a deadline to create for this challenge and the inspiration just came to me!  Love it when that happens.

Here is this week’s sketch:
I went with a 3 1/2x 7″ card.  Here is what I created:
The lines in the middle are just embossed with my score board and bone folder.  The flourishes in the corner are stamped with Whisper ink, in second generation and the sentiment in first generation, both directly on the card base.  The flourishes are from the set Instant Memories and the sentiment from Party Pennants.  I think both are retired.  I am drawn to the “smattering” of bling look, so I separated the 3 sparkles instead of keeping them together.  Here’s a close up of the embossing:

Now, it’s your turn to create with this week’s sketch.  Link it up here and make sure to mention that I sent you. 🙂
Happy Creating!
