AH 256 - An Extra Special Friend Card

Welcome to another sketch at Atlantic Hearts! 

This week, I decided to play around with the orientation of the sketch (rotated it 90 degrees) and also added a few elements to it. It is still obviously the same sketch, just enhanced a little bit. That's what I love about sketches - there is so much you can do with them! 

I used all Close To My Heart cardstock and inks but other stamps, dies and embossing folders for this card. On the embossing folder, I sanded ONLY the leaves to provide some added interest. That can be seen in the detail photo under the main photo, along with the shimmer on the flowers. Since I needed fairly tall flowers, some of them didn't reach very high so I stamped and cut out clusters of circles to cover the "ground". I love the sentiment - and I split it into two sections - part at the top and part at the bottom. The ribbon just seems to add a nice finishing touch.

Come and join us at Atlantic Hearts and show us how you interpret the sketch shown above. You have until Sunday night to link up your project.
