Sweet Sunday......Happy Valentine's Day

Happy Sunday Peeps!!

It is time for a new Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.
Here is our sweet sketch this week:
This is another sketch designed by our very own and oh so talented Karen Motz, who I Love!
I also love this great sketch, very easy to work with.
I am again using the Stampin Up Pleasant Poppies, hey it was out and on my desk.
This time I stamped a portion of the flowers onto some white card stock and then stamped again. I colored and then cut out the flower heads and added them over the top of the first ones with dimesionals.
I used raspberry ripple ink and my aqua painter to color them.
I wasn't planning a Valentines card when I started out but after putting it together I thought it looked very "Valentine-y" 
I am also linking this to the The Paper Players Challenge: Love is in the Air

I used one of the delicate doilies sizzlits to mount my flowers onto. 
The base of the card is Raspberry Ripple card stock and then I followed that with some white and the next layer is some DSP from a retired Simply Sent kit.
I then added more white and some more DSP from the Patio Party paper pack.
The edge along the bottom of the DSP is made from one of the Finishing Touches edgelits dies.
I added another strip of white that I embossed with the Chevron EF.
I finished it off with a loopy bow with a button and a few basic pearls.
I added some dazzling details to the flowers, 
Here is a closeup where you can see the sparkle and dimesion a bit:

Be sure and check out what the rest of the team has made with this sweet sketch:

Vicki, the chevron embossed layer was so unexpected and works wonderfully with the doily layers! I love that you kept a monochromatic color scheme, too. Another fabulous card.
So glad you shared it with the Paper Players this week
