Atlantic Hearts 190 - Hi Friend

The sketch this week at Atlantic Hearts is one with which I took quite a bit of liberty... The original sketch is horizontal and I chose to do a vertical card. I also chose not to use the circles within the sketch but to create a single circle within the centre and my border along the side is in layers. That is somewhat difficult to see as there are a lot of patterns happening but that was my intention as I wanted the wreath to be the focus. A sketch is a springboard for interpretation - and the last several weeks, I have been following the sketches very closely. This week, I decided to step out of the norm and do something kind of different. 

Also, with Christmas so close, my cards are finished so I wanted to create a card that was not Christmas-related. A lot of people would argue that the Oh Deer! paper pack is for Christmas. I disagree. I think this paper pack is perfect for MANY occasions and I love it!
