Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #23

Before I go into detail on my card below, I want to apologize for the lack of posts recently, I was away for 10 glorious days up in Cottage country enjoying all the beauty and splendor of fall. I spent the first part of the week with my husband and girls on Friday they went home and I stayed and welcomed friends for the first annual Fall Cottage scrapbooking weekend and I was thrilled with my progress I got 19 double page spreads done while I was away. But truly the best part of the entire week was seeing nature do its thing and seeing the fall colours come to life over the course of the week, it was breathtakingly beautiful. I love everything about Fall!

Now onto my sketch for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge, like Fall, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE everything about the Huntington paper pack and this page in particular. When I made this card it was killing me to flip over this beautiful paper (not that I do not love the other side of it, it just love this side so much more) that I just went with it, in hindsight, I should have flipped it over for the banner to add a bit more contrast. I am really loving being part of this design team, it is forcing me to step out of my comfort zone on some sketches and it is keeping me focused on always working on creating something.
