Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge – #23 Challenge

I continue to love the sketches for Atlantic Hearts Challenge for the  month of October. It was an awesome opportunity to work with one of the new Close to my Heart paper packs called Babycakes. The sketches are wonderful and versatile to   cards in the Babycakes paper. For these cards I made a lovely card box that I will show in the first picture. I decorated the box with card stock and Babycakes paper. For the bling and flowers on the top of the box I used a variety of CTMH paper flowers and Mini Medley packages of various embellishments. The inspiration for this card box cover came from a card in the new CTMH Fall/Winter 2013 idea book and catalog. The cards are stamped using several new stamp sets from the new CTMH fall/winter 2013 catalog and the Babycakes wonderful complements canvas shapes. Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in a catalog and the specific items used for these cards and the box!

Sketch # 23 September 30, 2013

What do you think of the card box? The card box holds a total of six cards and decorated envelopes. As with all my cards these days, I have decorated the inside of each card as well as the front of the card. I have included a picture of the front of each card for each Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge with the appropriate date in the entry. Please make sure to visit the Atlantic Hearts Sketch challenge and join in the fun each week with the wonderful sketches provided! The link can be located under my design team tab on this blog.
