AH 254 - Happy Wishes with Gimme Some Sugar

Welcome to this week's Atlantic Hearts challenge! 

With so many birthdays coming up on my calendar, I really need birthday cards and it is such a great opportunity to be able to combine design team challenges and cards for occasions together! 

I decided rotate the sketch 90 degrees. I used the Gimme Some Sugar paper pack for my card - LOVE that wood grain paper for the background. Everything else was kept pretty much as the sketch shows except I kept the sentiment and the embellishments together at the bottom. I used a Stampin Up set for the flowers and coloured them using watercolour pencils and a blending pen. The Bashful background paper does have a diamond pattern on it but it is so faint that my camera barely picked it up. The sentiment was stamped on vellum using Juniper pigment ink and embossed using clear embossing powder.

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