Happy Mother's Day - AHSC #210

My card this week as Design Team Member for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #210. Join this challenge...you have until Sunday, May 7th to enter your project.

The design team reveal for this sketch will be on Wednesday, 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. Don't wait for the DT post to create your project...show us up with your artwork.  

This card was created for Fantabulous and the CTMH Scrapbooking Month Special Paper Pack "Live Beautifully" shouts out Mother's Day. Didn't have a Mother's Day sentiment so I thought Cricut Design Space would have the perfect one I needed and it did. This die cut was actually a card but I resized it and instead of printing/writing changed it to cut.  Wasn't sure how it was going to cut so experimented on white cardstock before using my glitter paper, so that white will go into my stash for another Mother's Day Card.   The sentiment was layered with gold foiled design paper and Bitty Sparkles were added.   

The thistle background design paper was framed with the black polka-dot in packet.  For the banner...cut a strip but instead of a banner cut at the end, decided to cut around one of the larger flowers, adhered it on a black polka-dot layer and then raised the large rose with 3D thin foam tape. The Sentiment frame was adhered to card.  It took me longer to think of what I was going to do with this sketch, then it did to put the card together.

Gorgeous card - I love that you can just cut out the flowers from the large patterned paper and they become their own embellishment! The glitter sentiment is the perfect touch.
