Happy Mothers Day!

This is my last design team card before I go on my honeymoon. I will be away for Mother's Day so I wanted to make a Mother's Day card to get out early for the special Mom's in my life. This is for Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #53.
I wanted to use my stamp and punch set, Six-Sided Sampler from Stampin Up to make this card, so I thought I'd layer the pieces to make the flower. I stamped them with Stampin Up ink Crisp Cantaloupe and punched them then inked them in black and layered them with foam pieces for a dimensional look. I used black poka dot ribbon in the middle and I put it on a white card.  I thought it needed more so I inked the card with my Ranger distressing tool. I cut the letters using my Cricut Explore in the lyrical letters font and added some silver stickle to give it the bling I love.  I also added some mini perals from CTMH to the flower. 

Here is a more close up look to see the Stickles on the letters. It's cloudy today so my pictures are a little dark.  The color is more pinky peach then the pictures suggest. 

Here is a more close up look to see the pearls on the flower. 

I'd love to see what you create with this sketch! I comment on all sketches! Join the fun here. AHSC #53

Simple Card

 This weeks Atlantic Heart Sketch Challenge #51 seemed so simple to me, so I did not overthink this and just followed the challenge.  That's what I love about these challenges just run with what you see.

I love this watercolor paper by StampIn Up. Of course this is another new stamp set I got.  I went a little nutty buying stamps.  I bought this as a bundle with the punch again.  I then just took some ribbon and added the bling and voila! A simple nice card.  Ready to use for any occasion again.

Here is the sketch and I think my card follows it almost exactly. :-) I'd love to see what you can create with this challenge.  Click here to link your creation! Sketch #51.
