My Flower Garden

Thank you for visiting my blog! One of my favorite challenge sites is Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenges, a weekly challenge that begins each Monday morning. This is Challenge #455, which runs through Sunday evening, January 16, 2022.

Although my design was inspired by the sketch, I decided to take a bit of artistic license - a risk I enjoy taking. I die-cut a few rectangular and circular shapes from pretty paper and black cardstock and adhered them to a black cardstock panel. The sentiment was stamped and die-cut into a circle then added with foam tape. The decorated panel was added to a white card base and the inside of the card was decorated with coordinating paper.
