Atlantic Hearts Meets Scandinavian Wishes

Playing along again with this weeks Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge I decided to use the Close to my Heart stamp of the month, Scandinavian Wishes.  I'm also sticking to the Juniper & Ruby that are featured colors in our soon to be released Holidays from the Heart mini catalog.  Here's my response to the challenge.


It doesn't show as well as I had hoped, but the heart is rimmed with glitter.  I love glitter, but glitter doesn't like to be photographed.  Ever notice that?


I went around and around on what color to use where for this card.  I cut pieces in one, two or three colors and kept mixing and matching them until I finally ended up with what you see here.  Then I decided that I would use some of the left over stamped scraps for the inside of the card.  I'd like to say "nothing goes to waste" but it's really only a very small part of what I didn't use.

Here is the sketch from Atlantic Hearts.  Why don't you give it a try?  It's really fun!


This is the full set of stamps included in the Scandinavian Wishes Stamp of the Month from Close to my Heart.  You can click on the photo to go to my website to order it if you wish.  It's just $17.95 or you can get it for just $5 when you place a $50 order!
