Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge - #67

Welcome to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #67! 

This week's sketch is really cool. When I saw it, the first thing I thought of was clouds but I know that sketches are designed to be interpreted and not used exactly as they are created, so I chose to use flowers in place of the clouds for my design. 

The sketch is shown below and my card follows the sketch. 

For my card, I used a sheet of patterned paper from the Snowhaven Paper Pack as my background. I then chose Glacier and Lagoon Cardstock from the Paper Fundamentals Collections and I used the reverse side of the Glacier paper as well for the middle flower. Some older embellishments make the flower centers and I split a sentiment into three pieces by masking it to create my sentiment (it is one long stamp). 

Products used are all Close To My Heart 

Paper: Snowhaven Paper Pack, Glacier Cardstock, Lagoon Cardstock, Paper Fundamentals - Whimsy and Adventure Assortments
Stamps: Big Hug
Inks: Black, Lagoon
Accessories: Art Philosophy Cartridge, Teal Shimmer Trim, Lagoon Zipper Lace (ret.), Baker\s Twine - Paradise Assortment (ret.), Teal Acrylic Flowers (ret.), Thin Foam Tape
