Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #170

Welcome to this week's Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge!

For this week's sketch, I needed a grad card for my niece that graduated in NY but we're celebrating it now because she's out for a visit.  When I saw the new Back To School digis over at Craftin Desert Divas and this cute little School Teacher Owl I knew it would be perfect!  I just cut her out and did away with the chalkboard and added an extra book (in my usual style I had cut two images.  This time I cut one slightly larger than the other that worked out for both adding a book to the stack and when I inserted the scholarship roll for the pointer she had in her hand it was nice to have the extra wing tip in a larger size to cover up the paper piecing.  You can see it here because the ribbon kind of hides it, but I know it's there and it makes me happy.

Isn't she cute!!!???  I decided instead of the usual black hat, she would have wanted a cute pink one.  Isn't that pretty pink plaid paper just perfect??  It's from the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid paper pad.

I almost used a premade paper flower and then I came across this Flowers in Bloom stamp set by CDD and decided this one would be better since I could color it in the same colors and coordinate it.  And isn't that variegated crinkly ribbon pretty?  That's from D.L. Art's Mermaid collection and I LOVE it and it was perfect for this card.  I'm playing along with the DL.Art Linky Party for July as well which is Anything Goes.  I'm also playing along with the Aud Sentiments Anything Goes Plus a Sentiment Challenge

And the CDD Word dies and Tiny Sentiments set... I think perfect!  The banner and the little bracket sentiment tag here are from the CDD Pocket Pieces Hello Dies.

That's it for me!  Thanks so much for stopping by and head on over to Atlantic Hearts Blog and checkout the artwork and play along!  It's a great week to start!

Here are links to the CDD Products I used today:
