Quick Quotes Mulberry collection with Atlantic Heart Sketch Challenge

This is the first card I made with the new Quick Quotes Mulberry collection.  Although most of the collection is bright, I took this yellow and created a pretty subtle card.  I mounted on Stampin Up Delightful Dijon to bring out the darker dots and inked generously with Quick Quotes Rusty Nail to bring out the embossing.

Here's the sketch from Atlantic Hearts Challenge:

The sentiment is stamped on the reverse side of the same yellow paper!  One of the reasons I love Quick Quotes papers so much. I didn't use the SU Delightful Dijon ink, it was just a bit too dark, so I went with Adirondack Butterscotch.  I also found these awesome little flowers in my stash!  I am sure they are a mark down from Michael's from many years ago.  So glad I found a the perfect spot!
