Perfect Moment - AHSC #204

My card this week as Design Team Member for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #204. Join this have until Sunday, March 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. You don't have to wait until the DT posts their inspirations ... show us up on your creativity.   

Immediately looking at the sketch I thought about the many zip strips contained in the CTMH Paper Packs which many times they are forgotten about; but this card would make great use of them.  Chose the Hello Lovely Paper Pack and using one stamp for the floral bouquet.  

Planned out the zip strips and adhered to design paper and even my sentiment was a zip strip. The floral Bouquet was stamped with VersaMark, heat embossed with gold embossing powder, colored large rose with a watercoloring pen, traced gold lines on large rose with an embossing pen, heat embossed and then adhered floral bouquet to background.  

Inside of card was also stamped with VersaMark and the heat embossed with gold and tea rose embossing powders.

Wow, Sue! This is gorgeous! I had to look at the paper pack myself to check out the zip strip that you used... it fits perfectly for this card. Embossing just the center flower is genius - it adds so much interest to that grouping. Love this :)
