Thanks for Reaching Out

 I wanted to share a card I made using the latest sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. I wasn't sure what I was going to make until I pulled this stamp set, Sea of Textures, out of my stash. I haven't used this one in awhile so it was about time to give it some love!!  Building a scene is not my strong point but this one went together very easily.

Here's the sketch I used from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. They always have awesome sketches and this one is no exception.

Mint Macaron card base - 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, scored and folded at 4 1/4
Crumb Cake - 5 3/8 x 4 1/8
Very Vanilla - 5 1/4 x 4

Quilt Inspired Card Featuring Best Dressed DSP

I am on this kick of trying to use up my pattern paper. Now if you could see the pile I have, you'll agree, I'll never be able to use it up completely. I would at least like to see a dent made!! Hahaha!! This card was inspired by a patchwork quilt and uses paper from the Best Dressed DSP pack. Watch my YouTube video to find out how simple it is to make one of your own!! And while you're there, please consider subscribing to my channel...
