You Are Awesome

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #359 is open, beginning Monday, March 9, and ending Sunday evening, March 15, 2020. This sketch has plenty of possibilities!

In my continuing effort to use up my hoard of patterned paper, I found this silver and green stripe with coordinating floral paper. I like the silver metallic throughout this paper. The stripe is different from the sketch but that's what sketch interpretation is all about - right?
Onto a card base, I adhered a panel of white cardstock then the striped paper. The images were fussy cut from the floral paper.  The vellum was added to provide contrast between the floral images and the striped paper. I like the way the silver stripes show through the vellum. Using foam tape, the images were popped up onto the vellum. The sentiment was die cut and added. The inside of the card base was lined with a panel of white cardstock and decorated with paper and another fussy cut flower. 

Be sure to stop by and visit the AHSC #359 blog - you'll be glad you did!

  1. So pretty! I love those flowers and the silver foiling is beautiful! :)

  2. Sparkles! The vellum really does help that pretty flower show off. Thank you for joining us at Atlantic Hearts Sketch this week.

  3. Beautiful card, Melanie! I love all the silver and the use of vellum is great. Wonderful use of our sketch! Thanks for sharing at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.

  4. The vellum really keeps the background in check so the flowers can shine. And you are absolutely right about the sketch being a guide - not to be used exactly. Love your card! Thanks for sharing with us at Atlantic Hearts :)

  5. This is so pretty! Everything works perfectly together & I love the silver embossing. Thank you for sharing with AHSC.

  6. Melanie, what a lovely entry for the last AHSC sketch challenge. Thank you so much for all your entries. I love to see what you have done each week.
