Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #112

Welcome to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #112!  I just got this new stamp set from and knew I wanted to use it and was very happy that it worked right in to the sketch for Atlantic Hearts!  Not sure what it was about this set... I didn't have a carriage stamp plus the sentiments were so sweet.  "Don't Let Anyone Dull Your Sparkle" is one of the sentiments from the set.  I also purchased some of the oh so precious flower shaped sequins and just love them... they come in all sorts of colors-here I just used the gold, but you really do need to check them out.
The yellow and smoothie printed papers are from an old, old CTMH paperpack, Elemental and the lagoon floral is from the Skylark PML cards.  It was so much fun mixing all of these patterns.  I chose these colors because I'm also playing along with the Papersweeties Blog Inspiration Challenge for June.  The ribbon is Lagoon dyed seam binding ribbon and the metal flower is from the Brushed accessories.  I also used some gold puffies.  I even stitched again by hand and used the CTMH Stitching guide to poke the holes to follow for my zig zag stitch.
Hope all of the elements don't hurt your eyes to look at... they make mine happy!
Don't forget to check out all of the artwork over at Atlantic Hearts as well as Paper Sweeties... so much happy!!
