Happy Birthday - AHSC #200

My card this week as Design Team Member for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #200. Join this challenge...you have until Sunday, February 26th 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 stop by every Monday for new sketches.  

Immediately thought of the diamond shape design paper in Hello Lovely for my background and added a border cut, layered on sorbet and glacier cardstock and adhered to white daisy card base.  Decided on a floral stamp using VersaMark, heat embossed with very fine silver powder, used thin floral die cut, colored using water pen with CTMH inks, and Sentiment was stamped in black ink. Zip Strip was used for the band and Floral panel adhered with 3D Thin Foam Tape.

Oh, your card is so pretty! Everything is fabulous. Great card for AHSC inspiration and I really love the way you used that new edge die.

I love the faint colouring - it gives this card such a light and airy feel. Perfect choice for this stamp and sketch design.

Lovely card, Sue! I love your use of the flower bouquet as the focal point. I also love how you edged the pretty background paper with the lovely side borders. Thanks for inspiring me today.
