Sweet Sunday......Be My Valentine

Happy Sunday Peeps!!

It is Sweet Sunday Sketch Day 
and with the new Year comes a few changes, one is that we are going back to a weekly schedule, meaning we will have a new sketch every Sunday and we are also welcoming a couple of new Sweet Sunday Stampers.

Here is the Sweet Sketch Karen has for us this week:

Is it too early for a Valentine?

I started my card with a base of Basic Black Card stock and then a layer of DSP  from the Modern Medley pack. I then uses another strip of black that I embossed with a script EF and matted with some red glimmer paper and I used the pinking heart edge punch on that. The next layer is more DSP from the same pack and that is matted with more basic black. I made that layer into a banner piece.

The main piece is a rosette made form a strip of retired First Edition paper. I punched a heart using more of the red glimmer paper and added the "Be My Valentine" banner which comes from the single stamp of the same name. I just cut out the banner piece and added it across my hear with a few glue dots.
I got a bit carried away playing with the little hearts that came from the border punch, I added them randomly onto the polka dot flag piece and then used some crystal effects over the top. Kinda a cute little effect IRL. I finished my card off with a few red sequins. 

Now lets see what the rest of the team did with this fun sketch:
