Atlantic Hearts 194 - Birthday Card with Dreamin' Big

Happy New Year from Atlantic Hearts! 

The sketch this week is a layered one and I chose to use a brand new paper pack from the new Seasonal Expressions 1 Catalog from Close To My Heart. There are 4 new paper packs available and Dreamin' Big is just one of them, but it is the focus of this birthday card. I have a lot of friends' birthdays in the month of January so what better way to celebrate than with a card created using a brand new paper pack?? 

I mounted each patterned paper on a thin layer of black cardstock just for emphasis. The zip strip at the bottom was placed on a layer of Saffron cardstock and then on Sea Glass glitter paper for added interest. This card came together so easily as the sketch was so straightforward. 

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