This week's challenge at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge was great for one of the many swing cards on the Close to My Heart Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge. I've been wanting to play more with it and I found that the I had to modify the idea I had in my head a bit because it was different than I thought, but happy with the way it turned out. Love this style because decorating the front IS decorating the inside. I am not good at decorating the insides of my cards because my brain is spent by the time I get the fronts done...lol! This was fun and I'm going to try a lot more of these.
I used the Seaside paper for the woodgrain background and the paper fundamentals as accents (the Thistle paper). I pulled out next month's Stamp of the Month It's the Little Things for the flowers and the butterfly main sentiment are from Your Own Kind of Wonderful.
