AHS #50 and Balloon Talk Thanks

We were very fortunate to be able to take our sophomore daughter (and 7th grade little sis) to visit the University of the South and Vanderbilt University over spring break last week.  One of my MIL's friends is a dean at Vanderbilt, and we got the royal treatment while there.  I made this thank you card for her, inspired by the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #50 and the beautiful day we had there.


The Skylark paper pack screams spring to me, so it was my first choice for a thank you card.  The "believe" piece was perfect because the recipient really believes in our daughter!  Did you know that the top piece and the bottom piece are from the same 12"x12" piece of B&T Duos?  The stripes across the card are gold polka dot washi tape and Lagoon shimmer trim.  I cut the speech bubble with the CTMH/Cricut Artiste cartridge then stamped the sentiment in Lagoon.  The square durables are the perfect finishing touch, coordinating well with the quatrefoil pattern, the washi tape, and the bird.

Here are a few fun pictures from our trip:




Big Sis leaves tonight for a chorus trip to Chicago for the next five days, so I would appreciate your prayers for her and the group's safe travel!

Thanks {big time} for letting me share my card and a little of our trip!

Looks like a fun trip! And a great card to say "thanks" - I like how the polka dot washi tape lets the paper show through. And those square durables just fit into that pattern! I'm sure the Chicago trip is being great fun, will continue to pray for their safe journey.

Your card is beautiful, of course Skylark is my favorite paper of the moment.

Very cute card Haley! I love the colours and I love how you used the wash tape, I would have never thought of using it on a card with Skylark but it looks awesome!

Love what you did with the paper pack. Have not used, so guess it is incentive to dig it out. Thanks for sharing with us at AHSC
