GOOD SUNDAY MORNING PEEPS!!! It's my favorite time of the week, time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Sample

This is the fabulous sketch Karen has for us this week:

I flipped the sketch for my card, I rarely do that but, I did this time. I started my card with a base or rose red card stock. My card is a 5 inch square. I followed with a layer or whisper white and the designer paper is from the Stampin' Up Sweet & Sour Speciality Pack. I used a heart shaped paper doily for my circle element from the sketch.

The strip to the side is more rose red card stock with the edge punched with the pinking hearts border punch. The stamped sentiment is from the Stampin' Up Full of Love set. I masked off the "O" in the Love and added in the little Valentine girl from the Greeting Card Kids Stamp Set. I colored her with some pretty in pink, rose red, blush blossom and crumb cake ink. I added some whisper white satin ribbon and a pink button. I threaded some silver cord through the button and added a heart pin to the bow. I finished it off with some silver sticky pearls at each corner.

I hope you can find some time to play along with us this week, I would love to see what you come up with, create a card or scrapbook page with this sketch and then go to Karen's blog and link up your project for all of us to see.
