6/22/2016 Update: Atlantic Hearts Challenge Top Three Winner
My card started as something totally different with every intention of making it for two challenges, one Sketch Challenge, which inspired the layout, and a Tag Challenge. When I finished I realized the Tag Challenge would have to wait for another time because the tag on my card isn't even close to that theme's challenge.
I'm pleased with the pastel colors of my card and the wrinkled, crushed seam binding that I used for the triple bow. There's a part of me that wants to steam press that ribbon crisp and flat but I used it the way it is intended although it wasn't easy. (I'm a person who still likes my sheets and pillowcases ironed!)
Using a brush, a tag of vellum cardstock was dusted with pink ink. The bottom edge was die cut with scallops and a die cut swirly was adhered, then three punched flowers were added to the wreath. Foam was added to the back of the vellum to pop it up and to adhered it to the card. The triple looped bow was tied and adhered.
A smaller die cut wreath was added to the lower left corner, again with three punched flowers. The flowers were decorated with clear Wink of Stella and pearls. The finished panel was adhered to a card base. The card base was lined with a panel of white cardstock decorated with punched flowers and Wink of Stella.
The design for my card was inspired by the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #164.
