Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #212 and BTF Weekly Challenge #46A/B: Little Dreamer

Hi Y'all,
It's been awhile since I have posted.  I have had a crazy spring this year that has been crazy busy.  I also had some computer issues and hopefully they have been resolved.  I couldn't upload pics from my camera and couldn't post my cards.  UGH!  I am now resorting to trying it with my phone.  No edit program available, but at least I have pictures!

My card today is inspired by the sketch over at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge blog.  
Here is the sketch:    You can find the blog HERE.  I also knew that I wanted to use the new "Little Dreamer" Collection from CTMH.  Hence, I am also entering this card in the Between the Folds Weekly Challenge blog for their Challenge #46 A and B which is to use "Little Dreamer" collection from CTMH.    You can access that blog HERE.  

My card follows the sketch pretty closely.  I needed a retirement card so I used the "You'll be missed" stamp and die from the CTMH set called No Worries Cardmaking set with matching dies.  I also used the flower stamp and die from the Little Dreamer - scrapbooking set.  All my papers are from CTMH Little Dreamer collection.  I used glacier cardstock for the greeting piece.  The flowers were stamped with CTMH Thistle and Blossom inks.  (BTW - I love the new magnetic stamp pads!!!)  The greeting was stamped with CTMH Lagoon ink.  I popped the greeting and 2 flowers with dimensional adhesive.  I added some CTMH Glitter Gems to the centers of each flower and also some clear ones for added interest.  And there you have it.  I love this sketch and will use it again with scraps from other projects.  It's a good way to use up all those 1/2 inch zip strips and/or trim pieces you have laying around.  

Anyway, thanks for stopping by and hope you are having a splendid Sunday.
