Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #69 - Happy Birthday Card

The challenge this week at Atlantic Hearts is a sketch that I love - the tree or plant on one side and a sentiment on the opposite side. I immediately thought of a tree and went in search of that tree on one of the Cricut cartridges. I couldn't find exactly what I was looking for, so I created one using a tree base and some branches from the Art Philosophy Cartridge. More details about the card are below the sketch and the photo.


The woodgrain embossing folder gave me the background I was looking for. I decided not to use any patterned paper for this card and to stick with just cardstock. The Holiday Tags stamp set gave me the chance to stamp a background and then the sentiment I wanted inside. A few small embellishments later and this card came together very easily. It also gave me a chance to create a card needed for a friend's birthday next week!

Be sure to come and play along with Atlantic Hearts this week - the sketches are terrific!
