I'm here typing away as time is almost up to link up my card to Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.  I hate to admit that I am pretty good at procrastination.  :p

The sketch is quite challenge:

Since I saw it I have been wanting to use one of those lace images from Cricut cartridges.  I'm glad I found one from Artiste cartridge (p.69 Accent 2).  I cut it out at 1" real dial size, then added the sentiment from Frosted Cardmaking workshop on the Go, added some bling and leftover twine from the workshop, this card is done.  The part that took me the most time was to locate the right image from the cartridges and to test out which size works the best.  The actual crafting part is quick and simple.

  4. Beautiful job! Thanks for playing along at Atlantic Hearts.

  5. Very clever take on this sketch, Joyce! It has been fun to see the different interpretations of those "twiggy" elements in the sketch. Kudos to you for plugging away with the Cricut cartridge. Figuring out the right size can be one of the most frustrating parts of that amazing machine... And you ended up with a fun, bright, easily re-producible card! Thanks for linking up with Atlantic Hearts this week (even at the last minute!).
