Atlantic Hearts 248 - Floral Flourish with Smiles

The sketch this week at Atlantic Hearts just begged for a window card - at least to me. So, using my Cricut and Design Space, a straightforward 5x7 window card was created, making a large enough window to stamp this gorgeous flower collection that I had in mind. 

I created a small inner border for the window and then foam taped the stamped image on the inside so it sat a little bit back from the front. The flowers were brushed with the shimmer brush - the bottom photo shows that clearly. I also added some of the Make Waves gems to the flowers. 

Come and join us at Atlantic Hearts and show us how you interpret this week's sketch. Remember that a sketch is a starting point and can be rotated, altered, etc. It is important that it can be seen in your final project but it is only a guide!
You have until Sunday evening to link up your artwork.
