Atlantic Hearts Sketch #168

Welcome to this week's Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!  This week I flipped the sketch on its side and instead of a fishtail banner, I used a cluster of a stamp and embellishments!

I'm also playing along with the Verve Stamps July Inspiration Challenge... the colors and the bold patterns are what inspired me for this one.  I used the Happy Times paper because I love it and the colors were perfect for this challenge!

Love the new stamps I got from Verve when I won a gift certificate during the Summer Coffee Lover's Hop.  The set I used here is called Coffee Helps and that beautiful cup and sentiment and the coffee stain I embossed in chunky gold embossing powder are from the set.  I also got the Sprightly Sprigs die set that I used to cut the leaves... LOVE!  You can never have too many different leaf dies.. Truth!

And these gorgeous flowers and butterflies were in my prize pack from Petaloo last month... the orange flower was yellow, but I colored it with my Copics to fit the color scheme of the challenge... plus I like orange better! And more Sprightly Sprigs...did I tell you how much I LOVE them?

I cut the floral scalloped and vellum circles with my Stitched in Circle Dies from CDD and the scalloped rectangle background was cut with my Fancy Frames dies from CDD.  I heat embossed the sentiment from Coffee Helps in black.  And of course... I added some of my favorite gold Paper Sweeties Sequins!

And here is the sketch as it's meant to cock your head to the there it is!

Thanks so much for stopping by and be sure to get on over to Atlantic Hearts and play along!

And while you're at it... check this one out too!  LOVE these colors!
