Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #116

It's time for challenge #116 over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge Blog.  It seems like just yesterday we were celebrating #100!   Another very versatile sketch this week created by Michelle-just love the way they get me started on a day when I might otherwise sit and stare at my!
Last week, I cut these leaves to use on my AHSC project and loved them so much I cut extra.  And then I decided I liked the negative space so much I cut that strip off of the glitter paper as well and hung onto it.  Then as luck would have it, this week's sketch was perfect to use that strip on.  I will often cut extras of a shape that I think I'll use a lot or a shape that is included on a CTMH stamp set.  I store the random shapes in baggies in a photo box of extra cuts and I store the CTMH shapes in the envelope behind the stamp set they go with (idea from my good friend Susan Fogle!)
This card uses the Brushed paper packet and complements.  The flowers, ladybug and sentiment frame are all from the vellum complements.  I stuck them on paper and cut them out so they wouldn't be transparent and popped them up.  I also added a few layers of liquid glass on the ladybug to make her more dimensional.  The zig zag and sentiment are from the zip strips from the pack.  Cute little flower shaped sequins are from Papersweeties and the ribbon is some dyed seam binding.
Don't forget to check out all of last week's artwork from both players and design team and join us at Atlantic Hearts!

Liked the way you used the complements, and I like that you used the negative cut...I save all mine but never seem to use I can see how affective it can be. Pretty card.
