Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 78 - My Thoughts are Happiest... Card

Wow! I am amazed that I actually finished this on time! I have been so busy STILL unpacking and getting settled but my new craft space is almost complete now, so at least I am not having to dig for paper out of boxes any longer :) 

This week's sketch is one that can be simple or lend itself to many layers. I chose to add several layers to my card. I started out intending to use the Seaside Paper Pack but somehow ended up sidelined and found myself using Glacier, Lagoon and Colonial White cardstock with Glitter Paper instead... not entirely sure how that happened. The card took me quite a while to complete as masking images and 2nd and even 3rd generation stamping was necessary for the stamping component as well.

So, here is my final product, along with the sketch. 
For some reason, the colours seem to be "off" - they don't look like that in the photo on my computer and I am not sure why the photos appears so dull here on my blog. 



Products used are Close To My Heart unless otherwise noted:

Paper: Colonial White Cardstock, Lagoon Cardstock, Glacier Cardstock
Stamps: A Budding Friendship, Have a Happy Day
Inks: Lagoon, Glacier
Accessories: Dot Embossing Folder, Teal Glitter Paper, Scallop Border Punch, Colonial White Bigger Brads (ret.), ShinHan Markers, Clear Sparkles, Colonial White Button (ret.), Paradise Baker's Twine (ret.), Off-White Ribbon (satin and pleated - not CTMH), Turquoise Ribbon (not CTMH)

Enjoy, 
Alyson

  3. LOVE your card! Ive been trying to figure out a way to use these stamps without having to cut them out! I love your technique.

    The colors are a little off... so they match your blog background perfectly. ;-)

    Have a great day!
