SSSC102....Be My Valentine

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 was inspired by THIS card I saw on Linda Callahan's Blog! I used her colors and beautiful bow.

I started my card with a base of basic black card stock. The next layer is the three strips of Crumb Cake Card stock, I embossed those with the Vintage Wall embossing folder. The DS paper is from the Newsprint DSP and is matted with more basic black card stock. I tied a bow arounf this layer with some yummy basic black satin ribbon. The two hearts are cut with the Heart to Heart Embosslit using the Red Glimmer Paper in the mini and layered up with some dimensionals between the layers. I added some jute twine to the hearts and looped that under the bow.

The sentiment comes from the Filled with Love stamp set and is stamped onto the very vanilla card stock and punched out with my 1 inch circle punch. I then punched out a mat for that with the 1-1/4 inch circle punch.

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.
