New to me

Today I came across a challenge blog which is new to me. It's called Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge... quite a mouthful, but there's a great sketch this week!

The flowers from SSS were stamped onto vellum and clear embossed. I then coloured them on the reverse with alcohol markers. I die-cut them adding plain white die-cuts behind them, finishing with a few tiny gems in the centres and attaching them to the card with glue dots.
The sentiment is from Just Rite Stamps, die cut with a Framelit rectangle, shortened just a tad to fit the sentiment exactly. The embossed strip was added from a scrap left on my craft table.
I'll be having lunch with a friend on Wednesday and she wanted some of my cards... sadly she needed some sympathy cards too!
Another new to me blog which I just spotted is Crazy for CAS!
Their challenge this time is Fall in Love
Here is the inspiration picture, I hope my card fits the bill.

I used Rubbernecker stamps inked with varying colour Distress Inks, applied using my MISTI. For the sentiment I simply inked a piece of card with various colours of inks and then die-cut the sentiment which is  from Creative Dies.The  background which I used to echo the inspiration photo was embossed with a Stampin' Up folder.
It's also for the challenge at Addicted to CAS where the challenge is Foliage


  1. What a beautifull card! Thank you for joining Crazy for Cas!

  2. What a gorgeous card! They both are stunning really. Needing sympathy cards is never the best, I am always glad I have them when I need them, I just wish I didn't need them... Thanks for playing along at Atlantic Hearts Challenge!

  5. Gorgeous card, Chrissie. I have been an admirer of your beautiful crafting since I first found Less Is More quite a while ago. So happy to see you linked to us this week at Atlantic Hearts SC. The soft colors from using the backside of the vellum is lovely. Delicate and perfect for the sentiment.
