SSSC56 Happy Valentine's Day





HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY PEEPS!!!! It's Sunday so that means time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! My favorite time of the week!

Here is our sketch for the week:



I have been wanting to make one of these fun little button hearts for awhile now and this sketch was the perfect opportunity, Karen said we could change up the circle to a heart or flower or whatever, so there!!!!

My card base is kraft and I followed that with some melon mambo and then white and the DS paper is from the SAB neighbors pack. All the buttons are ones I had in my huge stash of buttons, actually I inherited a huge box of buttons from my Mom along with all I had from years ago when I worked at a shirt factory, so I do have tons!

The little flag sentiment comes from the SU "A Happy Heart" set. I hand cut it out and attached it to the button heart. I added some silver sticky rhinestones and a spiral clip with some white satin ribbon.

The buttons are glued onto the white card stock with tombow multi liquid glue. I just made the heart free-form, trying my best to make it look like a heart....UGH, that was the hardest part of this card. Do you think it looks like a heart?

Well, that is all from me today, let's see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers have for us to drool over:
