Amazing - Sketch #18 from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge

Do you have anyone in your life that is just simply amazing, maybe a neighbour, a co-worker, or maybe your daughter's school teacher?  Well the card I made for this weeks sketch is just that, Amazing.  If you haven't been over to our sketch challenge yet, here is the link to this weeks sketch, #18, where you will also find the inlinkz to link up your creation.

Sketch #18:

I love running this sketch challenge, seeing what our entrants and design team members come up with.  It's amazing seeing so many creations from one sketch.

Here is my card:
I had so much fun making this card.  The colours were so bright, and I popped at me.  I used the new paper packet Sarita (x7171B) from CTMH, and pulled the colours from the paper.  I cut 1" strips 5 3/8" long and then used the new Scallop Border Punch(z1851) to make the scalloped edges.  I layered them, using Outdoor Denim, Gypsy, Goldrush and Cotton Candy, used a strip of Sarita, then the top layer of cardstock is Lagoon, and that is cut at 2 1/2" wide.
I stamped the sentiment in Black Ink from the Love This Stamp set (B1432), and stamped the flower found on this stamp set 4 times in Archival Ink so that I could colour them with the Alcohol Markers.
CTMH Alcohol Markers come in sets of 2, one is the actual colour and the second is either a shade darker or lighter.  Using the darker colour first, I coloured where I wanted, then going over the entire flower with the lighter shade.  Don't you just love the effect.  The flowers are Outdoor Denim, Cotton Candy, Goldrush and Gypsy.
Don't forget to head over to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge to see the Design Teams Creations.
