Using My Stash for AH Challenge # 77


When I saw Sketch 77 at the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge I knew immediately that I wanted to play along.  It also helps that my life seems to be settling into a routine with the addition of a 9 year old in the house.

Although I knew I wanted to play, I wasn’t sure until I sat down at my desk what I wanted to do.  The card screams Christmas and initially I reached for some retired Christmas paper, but I’m just not ready to give up the mostly good weather we are having in the PNW and focus on Christmas.  So I dug through my paper stash to see what else I had and the Free to Be Me (retired) paper jumped right out with it’s pretty gold polka dot vellum.

I love that one side of the paper is embossed to give it some texture.  I cut the scalloped edge and the zig-zag circle from the Art Philosophy cartridge and adorned the center with the Happy Birthday stamp from B1467 You Mean the World to Me.  I finished my embellishing with some Gold Shimmer Trim – it covers up the little piece of card stock under the vellum and a photo bracket from the retired Tulip Mini Medley as I’m not much of a bow girl.

I’ve got my fingers crossed that my card will be good enough to appear in the top 3!  Check out the other entries here.

Happy Crafting!
