Smiles Begin with You - AHSC #194

My card this week as Design Team Member for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #194. Join this challenge...you have until Sunday, January 15th to enter your project.

The design team reveal for this sketch will be on Wednesdays, so be sure to stop by to see the beautiful cards from the rest of the design team and other entrant inspirations for this challenge...and every Monday for new sketches. 

My first intent was to create another Christmas Card...you'd think I would tire of them...but just thinking about my stash and how nice it was when I completed and sent out timely this past Christmas.  

Since we don't see a lot of snow out here in Arizona, my thoughts went to the upcoming spring... however, that may be pushing it.

When looking through my stamps I wanted my focal point to be the sentiment and decided on this one and stamped on design paper.  As far as the design paper I really wanted to use one of the new packets but my order had not come in yet as of yesterday and couldn't wait to see if it came in today.  So again started going through my stash of design papers and decided on Charlotte.  Trying many zip strips from Charlotte, the banner at the bottom of my card was found in this packet but is the design paper from La Vie En Rose...perfect for my card.  

The flowers and leaves of the floral bouquet were stamped on several design papers, fussy-cut, curled the edges and attached with 3D Thin Foam Tape.  Same stamp set was used for the corner florals on the inside of the card.

Charlotte is one of my favorite paper collections and I love the way you used it. Beautiful card!

One of my favourite paper packs... the flowers at the bottom add the perfect touch to this design. Beautiful.
