Atlantic Hearts Congrats

This weekend I was excited to be able to attend a fun Saturday crop hosted by Scrapper's Attic. I've been lamenting that I missed hanging out with other paper crafters in person...I mean, I love chatting with y'all online and stuff, but there's something special about a room full of scrapbookers and cardmakers! It was a ton of fun, and I snuck in a bit of shopping. Don't tell John! I can't wait to go back and crop some more, though I have to miss the next session since I'll be at the beach...cropping with my Oregon peeps...yay!!
As I perused the racks of Bo Bunny and Authentic I changed my card design for the Atlantic Hearts sketch challenge this week. I chose a lovely 6x6 pad of Simple Stories paper called the Story of Us. On Sunday afternoon I set out to use up some of that pad...but when I broke it open it was totally not the same paper on the inside. It was pastel and baby themed...still cute, but totally not what I had expected. Oh well, right? The best laid plans...so I grabbed my November Stamp of the month and made a long overdue baby card for a special friend. If I get it in the mail this week that'll be a miracle, but at least it's ready to be loaded with good wishes and gift cards! 
I stamped various pieces of the flowers using Pixie Ink and highlighted them with stardust glitter gel. Then I added plain old sparkles, but topped them off with a dot of glitter nail polish, which dries kind of rounded and gives the sparkles a much different look. 
Here's the sketch. Hop on over to Atlantic Hearts to play along!
