08/04/2021 Update: This card is a Top Three winner in AHSC Challenge #431!

It's time for another weekly Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge! This is Challenge #431 beginning on Monday, July 26, and ending on Sunday evening, August 1, 2021.

I interpreted the sketch as a masculine card so adhered a die-cut woodgrain panel to a green card base. The 1/2" strips were cut and placed onto the die-cut woodgrain panel using foam tape for dimension. Next, the sentiment was die-cut as well as its shadow and added with foam tape. The inside was lined with a panel of white cardstock and decorated with paper scraps. A few silver metallic studs finished off the card front.

I don't always have the opportunity to look at very many challenge blogs when I create cards but I noticed my card qualified for Dies R Us #173. With the theme of Anything Goes, their only requirement is to use a metal die. This challenge closes on Wednesday, July 28, 2021.

This card is going into the mailbox today, on its way to Florida where my nephew, Dan, will be celebrating his 31st birthday.

Don't let these sketches slip by unchallenged! Visit the AHSC431 Blog and the DRU173 Blog and have some fun.
