We have a new sketch for the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge and this card is rather special to me. I have 3 little girls ages 4, 5, and 6 that we are in the process of adopting and all 3 have shown an interest in scrapbooking since joining our family 2.5 years ago but my oldest and youngest have shown the most interest. While I am scrapbooking my oldest always seems to drift over and watch and she will sit with me for hours just watching me scrapbook or make cards but on this one she actually started moving things around and helping me with the placement of things. She stamped (for the first time) all the leaves in Sweet Leaf ink, she used Grey Wool ink to colour the colour seam binding. Her biggest contribution in my mind is that she suggested I colour in the word Love. I was going to leave it blank, just stamped in the Grey Wool ink but she thought I should colour it in and suggested that I do it with the Orange (Creme Brûlée) and the heart in pink (Blush) and she was right, it looked so much better.
The best thing is when we were done with this card, she got the left over flowers and leaves (I always cut a few extras) and what did she do with them? She made me a card and told me she wants to scrapbook and make cards with me and for me forever because she loves me forever....how does that not just completely melt your heart?
So here is my card...The paper is Lucy (retired) the stamp set is Girls Rock (which mine do by the way!), the ribbon is the colour seam binding coloured with Grey Wool ink, card stock is Creme Brûlée and Grey Wool and I used the Cricut Art Philosophy to cut out the flowers. And the love was coloured in with Blush and Creme Brûlée using the water colouring pen.
Thanks for stopping by!
