Flowery Thanks for AHSC #220

Hello again, crafty friends!  I took a week off from crafting to get my home in order so we could host a family dinner for my husband's 50th birthday, and it feels like I've been gone forever!  And while I dearly love celebrating holidays and occasions with family and friends, I am ready to get back into my old, familiar routine again.  So I thought it was only fitting to create a thank you card for my sweet sister in law who was a big help, and this week's sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge was perfect for the occasion!

All products are from Close To My Heart:
New England Ivy cardstock was used for the 7 x 5" card base.
Pink variegated paper was from retired Happy Times (HT) kit cut at 6 3/4 x 4 3/4."
Flower patterned paper was also from HT, cut at 6 1/2 x 4 1/2."
The banner was cut at 5 1/2 x 3 1/4" using the same pink variegated paper.
The Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge was used to cut the scalloped oval from NE Ivy cardstock using at 2."
The center oval was from White Daisy cardstock using the Thin Cuts - Basic Ovals (largest of 4).
The sentiment was stamped with New England Ivy ink using the Scripty Thank You stamp and colored using the following ShinHan alcohol markers:  Sap GreenLeaf GreenTender PinkCherry PinkLight OrangeMarigoldGolden Yellow, and Clay.
The rolled flower was cut using the AP cartridge using the   setting at 3" and held together with Liquid Glass adhesive, and a retired medium sized pearl was added to the center.  The leaves were cut freeform from a zip strip from the HT kit.

We would love to see your take on this fabulous sketch.  As always, you have until 10:55 pm Eastern/9:55 pm Central on Sunday, 7/16/17, and you can link your projects HERE.  You can also follow this link to view the other design team members' projects.  FYI, the AHSC team is recruiting new members so if you have an interest is creating a sketch-based project every other week for a 6-month term, you can find out how to apply by going to THIS PAGE.
