AHSC Sketch #161

Today I'm sharing two cards that I made with a wonderful new sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge blog! 
Sketch #161 created by Michelle Stewart
 at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge blog
Loved this sketch so much that I decided to make two cards for family members having birthdays in June and July. Boy, it sure feels good to be ahead on SOMETHING these days! 

Here is the first card, which will be for my sister-in-law, Patricia. She lives in Ontario. :)

A second card was made with this sketch. It will be sent to my "middle" sister Mary, who has a birthday in July. She lives in New Brunswick. :)

Starfish accented with Stickles
White gel pen dots
'Fundamentals' glitter circles
I used Close To My Heart (CTMH) cardstock and a collection of paper called "Seaside" for both cards.

'Smoothie' Cardstock (CTMH)
Starfish (from Regatta complements) was flipped over to the plain Kraft side and covered in Stickles
'Waterfall' Stickles used to accent both cards
'Seaside' paper collection- all papers used here (retired) 
Glittery circles & hearts came from the CTMH Fundamentals sticker sheet in 'Glacier'
Scallop border punch: Fiskars
White gel pen: Uniball by Signo
Inks: Glacier and Crystal Blue (retired)- both CTMH 
Greeting is from the  "Joyful Birthday" stamp set by CTMH- (# 1618)
