Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #14

I'm participating in the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge again this week.
Since I am waiting for most of my new CTMH products to arrive I decided to mix some new paper with some leftover paper from another pack. The grey, chocolate, yellow & orange polka-a-dot paper is from the NEW! Baby Cakes paper collection & it matches perfectly with the Dotty For You papers from last summer!
The Happy Birthday sentiment is stamped with chocolate pigment ink. I find you get a better image when you use pigment ink for stamping on printed papers.
The flowers are all cut with the CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge. The largest is 2.5 inches and the smallest is 1.25 inches. The center of the flower is a piece of bronze glitter paper punched with a regular hole punch and attached with a small glue dot. I just realized the camera didn't pick up the sparkle but it really does have sparkle!
The hemp pieces are placed on the card by applying a glue dot to stick them to then adding a piece of double sided scotch tape on top to keep them in place.
The flower is mounted with foam tape so it's not got a bump from the hemp.
this photo shows how I attched the hemp

I love this sketch!

 Now go take a look at all of the other cards posted!
