Wonderful sketch...my hat is off to Karma! I tweaked the sketch a little for the creative process. Base paper is A Paper Studio and the banners were from my scrap pile. Sentiment and image is from Unity which I actually bought a long time ago; this sketch seemed a perfect fit. After stamping the image I decided to cover the flowers with the banners and the butterflies with a heart for a more manly card. I added the brads because my sentiment was a little too high. I need to get back to hopping....

Welcome to my blog! I decided to try something a little different on my card by embossing paper and then using the negative of the anchor diecut (Paper Smooches) as my "image". Sentiment is from Hero Arts and the dp is from A Paper Studio. Missing You and I Love You cards are the most requested, so I have been trying to increase the number of cards in those sections of my box.

I decided to take inspiration from two challenges to create the card I am sharing today. Most of the cards I make end up going to OWH so I want them all to be A2 "friendly". I found some nameless two colored cardstock and cut one side shorter that the other so my banners could go "Off the Edge" the theme of the latest challenge at ATCAS. The theme for OWH's MWT is Miss You card which is why I used this sentiment. The banners were made using scraps I have not had the heart to throw away yet. There is time to play at both challenges if you want to join in!

It's not very often I will make a card that I can link up to 3 challenges. This card fits the themes for Cards in Envy, Words 2 Scrap By, and OWH MWT. The flowers are from Stamps of Life, which I heat embossed and fussy cut; there are three layers to each for some "flatish" dimension. I just love how the white and orange pops. The jar is by Unity and sentiment was with the flowers. The green paper is Echo Park.

I had actually started this card for the Cards in Envy April Showers Challenge but life got in the way so I missed the deadline. Great sketch Carol!...kind of outside of my usual style which makes it a good challenge! The sentiment is heat embossed which makes it eligible for this month's ODBD challenge. I am doubling up to make up for my lack of time. Image is a free one by Sliekje, and sentiment by CTMH. The clouds were dies by Paper Smooches. Thanks for stopping by!
