Atlantic Hearts Sketch 162 - Happy Times - Thanks a Bunch

I have been busy this month creating all sorts of other projects that I can't post on my blog yet - gifts for people at the Close To My Heart Convention in another month, etc. You will see some of these items at a later date. 

This is one of those sketches at Atlantic Hearts - one of those that just fit what I wanted to do without having to change anything. Normally, I play around at least a little bit with the sketch design but I kept almost exactly to the sketch in this case. The Happy Times paper pack was perfect for what I wanted to do. The main floral design was the perfect paper to showcase in the centre of the card and then a small sentiment underneath embossed in gold fit perfectly. I did add a stamped flower from the Happy Times stamp set. My lighting really washed out the gold strip in the photography (even through the lights were actually turned off when the photograph was taken...)

Join is at Atlantic Hearts to show us your interpretation of the sketch shown above. You have until Sunday evening to link up your project.

Lovely card, Alyson! I love the patterned papers that you chose from the Happy Times Paper pack. The Grey wood paneling lets the floral pattern just "pop" off the page. Well done!
