Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #152... and some coffee...

 
Welcome to this week's Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!  As you may be aware, we're in the middle of the Spring Coffee Lover's Hop so of course my card is coffee themed.  And I'm also playing along with Aud Sentiments Bingo and a Sentiment Challenge and the Color My Heart Color Dare!


I've used quite a mixture of products this week.  Some items are leftovers from old projects and some are brand new.  First I used the Tim Holtz embossing folder on the background, embossed with versamark and white on white and then used my watercolors to splash around a little of each of the other colors in the color challenge.  It has a really cool texture... almost suedish.. and I like the way it came out.  I cut two panels from CDD's Fancy Stitched Labels Die set.  The sentiment I got during the last coffee hop from the Latina Crafter.  Love shopping with her and she has a section of coffee/bilingual items and I've found quite a few gems over there.

 
That cute crown is a die from Poppy Stamps and see those cute little flower beads.. those were in my bag of goodies that I won from the Color My Heart Color Dare Challenge for the month of February and are old CTMH and so pretty!  Thanks so much Marie!  The cup is the teacup from the CTMH Treats of Friendship set.  I had stamped and embossed that one during the last hop as well and didn't end up using it.  I cut off the teabag so now it's a cup of coffee.  The fern leaves are from Artistry and the other branches are from a Tim Holtz set of dies.  And of course, my favorite sequins to use on a Color Dare project, the clear ones from Pretty Pink Posh.  Whew!
 
So join us over Atlantic Hearts this week and maybe you can link up with some of these other great challenges!  Thanks so much for stopping by and come back tomorrow for more coffee!
