Welcome to the last October Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!
So a few weeks ago, my friend Tracey created this gorgeous card for the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop with a gorgeous ruffled paper "skirt" on it (which you can see here) and it looked like fabric... I was shocked that it was paper. So, she was so kind to send us a link to an online tutorial (which you can see here). When I saw this week's sketch, right away I got excited because where the scallop is I saw ruffles! So I headed on over to the tutorial. I don't think my version is as fabric looking as Tracey's, but I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. I used the CTMH La Vie En Rose paper pack which I think is gorgeous with it's mostly black and white papers in various patterns and then bam! a rich and beautiful floral.
I used one of Paper Sweeties stamp sets, Life is a Special Occasion for the carriage... for some reason whenever I stamp this one I emboss it with gold...lol... and made it into a "shaker"... not too much here moves because the sentiment "Don't Let Anyone Dull Your Sparkle" from the same set is inside and there isn't much room (I even glued a couple in there so they wouldn't move), but I think it looks pretty. Some more (roll your eyes here) paper flowers from Art Philosophy, ribbon from Paper Sweeties, the sentiment banners are from CTMH You're the Bomb, a gold button I got from Stampin Up, feathers from Petalo and of course.. the sequins are from Paper Sweeties... too much? Well, maybe, but I like it... More is more!
Thanks for stopping by and hop on over to Atlantic Hearts and check it out!
