AHSC #220 - Thank You

This card was created using the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #220 combined with Three Amigos Bloghop Challenge "Prickly Pear Inspiration" and Paper Smooches "Anything Goes" and "Aug Guest Designer Search".  Please stop by these challenges to see the inspiration projects from DT and entrants.  

Chose the small floral print from "Prickly Pear" and Paper Smooches "Garden Blooms" die which was a perfect match as a focal. The Blooms were die cut from design paper and the banner from another design paper which was a great contrast between the two. My first sentiment was black, but it was too dark and distracted from the Blooms, so I cut a second sentiment and adhered over the black leaving a shadow. 

Join us at have until Sunday, July 16th 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 us up with your artwork.

When I picked up my negative of the Garden Blooms to throw out, or put in my stash for a later use...WOW, I can use this now for the inside border of my card.  So I put another strip of design paper in back of the negative and it was a nice contrast and blend for the front of my card.
