Atlantic Hearts Sketch #16: Thanks

Welcome to another week with Atlantic Hearts!  We had a fun sketch to work with this week.  Here it is:

I decided to turn it and here is what I came up with:

Please forgive the quality of my photos.  Our card reader has gone AWOL so I had to use my cell phone to take these.  
I went deep in the recesses of my stash to pull out some really old neutral papers.  These patterns came from It's a Guy Thing, Grace and Game On.  I used a Kraft cardstock base and edged everything with Desert Sand ink and a sponge.  Yup, my favourite technique comes out again!  The flower is layered.  It's two different sizes of Maya Road flowers I bought eons ago at Michaels.  I used some leaves from some old CTMH flowers, can't even remember what set they're from.  Then I added a Mocha Opaque.  The sentiment is stamped in Cocoa ink from Card Word Puzzle.  

Here's another one, same paper.  I used two flowers from the same set and instead of the leaves, I cut apart a green flower and added some Olive ink to it.  The sentiment is stamped in Cocoa again, from a retired set called Thank You.  Personally, I like this on better.  :)

Thanks for checking out these quick and easy cards.  Pop on back to Atlantic Hearts and link up your project using this week's sketch.  I'd love to see what you do with it!

Happy Creating!


  1. I really like your cards, but I do like the second one better too! Great job!

  2. I love your work once again. I love both of them but the red while it pops it just seems a bit more subtle with the neutrals. I love it!

  3. I like them both! The neutrals make the flowers that much more dramatic.


Thank you for leaving a comment! They make my day.
