Find Joy in the Ordinary

My card was made for the weekly sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenges. These sketches are always a great source of inspiration. A week or two ago, I made a card for a color challenge and liked what I created on the inside of the card so when I saw this sketch, I decided to use the same products and colors to create this card. (Click HERE if you are interested in viewing the other card.)

The Atlantic Hearts Challenge began on Monday, May 24, and will end on Sunday evening, May 30, 2021. Here is their sketch:

Onto a card base, I added a white die-cut rectangle with scallops that was stamped with some tiny butterflies in yellow and pink. Using dies, I cut the flowers and leaves, which were arranged onto the card front, some with foam tape and some without. The stamped sentiment was added with foam tape. The inside was lined with white cardstock and decorated with additional flowers and leaves.

You can join the challenge by visiting the AHSC422 Blog.
