Atlantic Hearts Sketch 156 - Floral Thinking of You

When I first saw this sketch, it reminded me of bandaids across the page... I wasn't quite sure what I was going to do with it. I decided not to round the edges of the shapes and I also decided to move the location of the ribbon between the last two shapes for some added interest - after all, a sketch is starting point for a design. I also added a sentiment separate from the elements on the sketch.

For this card, I went back to one of my favourite stamps sets - Have a Happy Day. I love that stamp set - it has so many great sentiments plus terrific flowers and greenery, even though it involves fussy cutting... The Penelope papers are so bright and cheerful for a card like this as well!

  2. The sketch reminds me of three Bandaids but your card is so pretty and colorful. It reminds me of spring! Thank you for providing some much-needed inspiration.

  3. Happy Card...and nice that the snow is finally behind you...spring has sprung. Me too, had to look beyond the bandaids, although I have seen some cute bandaid cards. Beautiful card decorated inside and out.
