Wow, sketch # 94. It seems like a lifetime ago since I participated in the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge . I have been away from my crafting  since the end of Sept . It has taken me a great deal of effort to get back at it . My heart is not in it since the loss of my husband of 42 years. I hope that I have done this challenge justice . Maybe I need to shake things up a little and try changing my style. I will try that next time around. For now , here is my card for this week. I made it for a very good friend who is having a birthday in March.
Here is this weeks sketch:

Here is my take on it:

The paper pack I used is Heartstrings . A gorgeous paper from the mini cattie from Close To My Heart . This mini cattie runs out the end of March 2015, so  make sure you check it out and get your order placed soon. The rose,leaves, and swirls are  cut from Art Philosophy Cartridge also from CTMH . The greeting is from the stamp set Find Your Style.  Hope you like and, and I sure hope my friend like it. Have a wonderful week and don't forget to make good use of all your little bits and pieces.
