Sunshine and Smiles Card for Sketch #17 at AHSC

So yep, you've probably figured out that this post is related to the fact that this is week 17 over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  So I'll just cut to the chase, here is the sketch for this week:

So, incase I haven't told you, when I make the sketches, I base them on how I plan on making my card/scrapbook page, or project.  So, my sketches are really just hen scratching that I scan and send to Darla, and she then takes them and digitalizes them.  She is my techie guru.  Without Darla the AHSC would not be so wonderful.  Plus we have a really great design team, who apparently had a difficult time with my sketch; but still managed to come up with some great creations.

So for my card I wanted to keep the base of the card one layer, and wanted to add dimension through the embellishments. I started with the Buzz & Bumble Honeycomb pattern paper and stamped the sentiment right on the paper in Cocoa Ink.  The sentiment comes from the Stamp Set Special Friendship.
Close To My Heart introduced a new sheet of Irresistibles Dimensional Elements, Hexagons!  What I love about these Dimensional Elements are that they have a resist pattern that shows through when covered in ink. The colors used on the Hexagons are Sunset, Honey, Cocoa, Goldrush and Sweet Leaf.

So now that you've had the chance to find out how I made my card, you can pop over to AHSC and check out the creations from the Design Team.   Please remember to leave comments, we love to hear from you!


  1. Love the colors!! Your sketches are always lovely, though I must say the digitized ones are a little easier to follow..........LOL.I didn't realize the hexagons were textured. Great to know! Thanks for all you do !!


I enjoy hearing from you, and love to get blog love for my creations. Thank you for visiting my blog.
