I am waaaay late with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge. It was an insanely busy week last week and I am just now getting a chance to make a card for this wonderful sketch! There are so many things you can do with this sketch that it was hard to settle on one. My first thought was to put a big old snowflake in the middle, but Maureen beat me to it LOL! You can see her card here. So I opted to go with a Valentine's Day card instead. I have always loved hearts and for some reason I was in the mood to make a Valentine's Day card.
I pulled out Martha Stewart's heart border punch which I went to great lengths to get last year because I just loved it. For some reason my local Mike's only carried six of these punches and since it is a "seasonal" item, once they are gone they are gone!! You think after all these years of being there they would learn that this location is in the middle of Scrapbookers and Card Makers Anonymous territory!!! So basically, if you aren't there the day the punches get shelved, you are out of luck - that was me! I was desperate enough, I mean focused enough lol, to travel clear across town to another Mike's that isn't as busy and was willing to put one on hold for me until I got there. Plus I got to use a 40% off coupon - score!!! (savings which got burned up by the gas I had to use, but we don't count that do we - grin..!) It never ceases to amaze me what crazy things we will do all in the name of card making LOL! Okay, confession time is over, back to the card :D
I pulled out my scalloped circle nesties and then punched out two hearts from some darling Making Memories DP. Since the DP had polka dots I just had to use my Swiss Dots embossing folder (yes, I'm in another support group for my over indulgence of this wonderful folder). I popped all the layers as well as the hearts up on dimensionals and finished things off with this lovely sheer silver ribbon. Just noticed you can see the dimensionals under my hearts in the picture -- sorry, my bad. Wrong camera angle!
Thanks so much for stopping by. I know my posts have been sporadic as of late. Life is winning the battle for my time these days so hope to make up for it a bit this week. Have a fabulous day :D
