AHSC455 Congratulations

 Happy Wednesday, peeps!  My schedule is all out of whack but I did manage to make a card for the Atlantic Hearts sketch challenge today:

I needed a card for a new team member, and I have been hoarding this pretty Heart and Home DSP, so I decided to break it out!  I paired it with some images from Quiet Meadow, and a sentiment from Special Moments:

I stamped a background in Pale Papaya and Cinnamon Cider with a couple of the images, then added the fussy-cut and popped-up flower, stamped in Basic Gray and colored with some Blends.  After diecutting it with a Layering Circle die, I added a few vellum leaves from the Forever Flourishing dies, and I sponged them with some Pale Papaya ink to make them stand out a bit:

I added a sentiment banner, some ribbon, and finally a trio of Genial Gems in the upper left corner. Oops, and I forgot; the diagonal pattern was achieved with embossing the DSP at an angle with the retired Coastal Weave embossing folder, then sponging on a little bit of Cinnamon Cider ink:

Thanks so much for popping in today!  Enjoy it and be blessed!
