Atlantic Hearts sketch #264

The weekend just flew by didn't it?  I know that even though I spent a few hours each day at my craft desk, it wasn't near enough!!  Of course, it never is, is it?!!  If you remember my monthly goal was to complete 3 challenges I had never participated in before!  So today I was able to check the second challenge off my list!  Today I am participating in the Atlantic Hearts Sketch challenge!  Here's the sketch:

Here is my card using the sketch:
Supplies Used: Cardstock: Charcoal & White- CTMH; Patterned Paper: CTMH Make Waves; Ink: Black- CTMH; Markers: Shin Han- CTMH; stamp: Puny Pals- CTMH; circle die: Stampin' Up; sentiment: unknown source
I had a lot of fun getting out of my comfort zone with this sketch! It was a bit different with a lot of "white" space which is always a challenge for me, but I love how it turned out!  This card is actually going to be a birthday card for my niece who loves cats, but the kicker is, her birthday isn't until November lol!  So I am WAY ahead of the game, which does not happen often with me!  😏 I also was able to use up one more item out of my BASHket!!  The sentiment was in a random kit I got in a class YEARS ago and I found it while cleaning and purging and stuck it in my BASHket in hopes of using it!  So glad to finally use it!  It's cute so not sure why I never used it before!  I also was able to use my Puny Pals stamp set that I had bought and never used!  I accomplished a lot with this one card:
 1) complete 3 new to me challenges ✅✅
2) use up an item in my 10 items in my BASHket ✅✅✅✅✅
3) Use 3 stamp sets I have never used yet ✅✅
Things are looking good goal wise this month...I really want to buy myself a reward!! It's month 5 and I have yet to hit a goal!  I know this is my month!  I hope you will check out the Atlantic Hearts challenges, they have some very inspiring projects created by their DT! I learned about this challenge by reading my friend Lori's blog, she is one of the DT members and I always drool over her work but never make time to play along with all the fun challenges she shares!  Happy creating friends!
