50th Birthday Card With Atlantic Hearts Sketch #213

Welcome back to another Atlantic Hearts Sketch challenge blog post!  We have a really interesting sketch for you to try this week.  Here is what I created to help celebrate a big birthday for my friend MaryBeth:

The background was randomly stamped with an old CTMH stamp called "Starburst Fireworks" using Glacier and Tulip inks.  The sentiment and numbers were cut out of shiny metallic cardstock ("Holiday Foil") from Craftsmith.  Here is a view from a different angle so you can see the sparkle.

Here is the Atlantic Heart Sketch that I followed.  Just click on it to get to the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge blog.  The DT reveal will be posted Wednesday morning so you can create without being influenced by the DT.

I created my card in Design Space using the Close to My Heart Artbooking cartridge and used the Cricut Explore to cut it.  Here is the Cricut Design Space file if you would like to replicate it. 

This card is being shared with the following challenges:
     Allsorts Challenge--Happy Birthday 
     Seize the Birthday--Optional Creatures or                           Animals 
     Craft for the Craic--Anything Goes 
     Bitten by the Bug--Birthday
     Always Fun Challenges--Anything Goes

We would love to see what you create using the above sketch!

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a wonderful week filled with fun and creativity!
