Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #169

Welcome to this week's Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and another great sketch from Michelle!

I'm also taking the opportunity to play along with the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #367!  The tropical feel inspired me because I LOVE the Calypso Papers and Complements from CTMH... flamingos, pineapples, and bright colors oh my!  This time I mixed up Calypso with the Happy Times paper because that woodgrain paper... yum!

The Complements made it so quick and easy to create this card.. the vellum flamingo and pineapple, the little cardstock sticker hearts and the flower I placed in the center of the larger white flower and the Relax Sentiment.  Also, I finally found my Calypso sequins and it was fun to place them around.  And the fun colorful strip is one of the zip strips from the Calypso paper pack.

I also love that I was able to use up a lot of extras I had sitting on my table including that pretty scalloped circle from CDD (I colored the scallops with one of my alcohol markers); that pretty stitched flourish from MFT;

Not to mention the sprigs I created from a wreath I cut for a previous project from one of the CTMH cartridges and it ripped and I had to cut a new one... here I cut it into sections and used it as extra greenery with my clusters.

Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to stop over to the Atlantic Hearts site and play along!  Wednesday is the announcement of the Top Three from last week and the Design Team samples for the sketch.  Check it all out and play along!

And don't forget to checkout the Cupcake Inspirations challenge blog as well!  Lots of cool Design Team projects over there too!

Come back tomorrow for a little something sweet!
