I am a new empty nester, and I love to make cards and ATCs. I am always looking for ways to use the product I have, to learn new techniques and ways to do things, and most of all, to have fun with the creating of my art.

Hero Arts Sketch Card
This is a card that is for the Hero Arts challenge this month. They had a technique, a theme, and some sketches to play with. I chose one sketch, and made this card. I started with Bazzil bling pink cardstock, cut and folded to a standard sized card. I added a strip of patterned paper that I got at WalMart, then went over that with a kraft scalloped edge piece. I added a turquoise button. I took some green and pink patterned paper from WalMart again and punched a 2.5 inch circle. I stamped the butterfly ( Hero Arts - Antique Engravings) in Broken China Distress Ink. I adhered the patterned paper strip, the kraft strip, and the punched circle to the pink card base. I stamped "just because" (Hero Arts) in Broken China Distress Ink. I finished the card by added 5 light blue gems to the card.
