Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge #545

Happy Monday friends! In Canada, it's Truth and Reconciliation Day. It's a day to reflect on the children sent to Residential Schools who either never returned home or were subjected to inacceptable conditions. Honestly, I hadn't really thought about it until suspected graves of children were identified around the properties of the former Residential Schools. Residential Schools were designed to assimilate Indigenous children into "Canadian" society. I'm understanding better why some people are "messed" up by this and will offer them more grace. 

As it's Monday, it's also time for a new challenge at Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge. Here's the sketch, we hope will inspire you

Here's my card

For my clean and simple card, I die cut the foliage using gold cardstock and Simon Says STAMP's Eucalyptus Leaves die. For the sentiment, I started with an A2 panel of natural cardstock and used Simon Says STAMP's Petal Pieces stamp set with gold embossing powder. I trimmed the A2 panel slightly and matted with the same gold cardstock. I used some green grosgrain ribbon for the horizontal band which I adhered between the A2 panel and the gold mat. I adhered the final panel to a white A2 cardbase to complete my card.

We'd love to see how you're inspired by our sketch this fortnight.
