Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #167


Welcome to this week's Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!  and Happy Birthday America!

I didn't set out to make this card a patriotic one, nor did I set out to make it a Paper Sweeties creation, however, when I got done, there it was!  I knew I wanted to play along with Color Dare which was red (Ruby), white (Colonial White) and blue (Sapphire) and the striped bottom was perfect for this and before I knew it I'd used a bunch of my favorite Paper Sweeties dies and stamps...lol!  And since today is Independence Day, then what better time to post a project like this!

I'm also playing along with the Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge and this card also fits the Paper Sweeties July Inspiration Challenge!  Be sure to check them both out!


The ribbon is from D.L. Art's Rainbow Collection, and I'm playing along with the July Linky Challenge which is Anything Goes!

I know... ANOTHER sentiment with the little squigglies exploding out of it... I hope you're not getting tired of these because I'm certainly not...lol!  So thank you Michelle for another great sketch and hope your day is the kind of celebration you hope for... whether it's a fun packed, people packed noisy day of fireworks or a calm relaxing Monday at home (if like me you are lucky enough to be able to stay home today)

So head on over to Atlantic Hearts and check out all of the artwork, get inspired, and join in this week!  And why not play along with Color Dare too?  It doesn't have to be your traditional patriotic theme... lots of fun can be had with these colors!

Thanks for stopping... and be sure to come back tomorrow... I'll have something different for you!
