here. She also has a great SCS gallery.
When I first saw this sketch, my vacation mode mojo wasn't too happy LOL! But after thinking things through a bit I decided I wanted to make a Valentine's Day card. Initially there were two hearts in the circle, but it just wasn't working for me so I decided to go with my Heart Nesties in lieu of the circle. I tied a bow around one side of the heart and added a button to the middle. I wanted to add a red button but didn't have any so I had to go with a pink button with red ribbon instead. Of course, my Swiss Dots embossing folder had to make an appearance so I embossed the white heart for some texture (believe it or not, I actually bought a second Swiss Dots Embossing folder so I have a back up when this one wears out LOL!) and crimped the red panel in lieu of DP as I don't have any red and white or pink and white DPs I could use. Hmmmm, I feel the need for some shopping :D.
I wanted to add a sentiment, and this fabulous "I Love You" from the Mike's $1.50 stamp bin was perfect and I just love the script. Something was still missing so I pulled out my $1.50 mini heart punch from Mike's and added three hearts down the side, plus a button next to the script to balance off the button on the bow and then finished things off with five, silver half pearls under the sentiment.
Thanks so much for dropping by and have a fabulous day :D
