Looove This Sketch!

 
I just looooved the sketch Verve Diva Teresa came up with this week!  I must confess I reeeeally had to restrain myself from putting a maple leaf where the heart LOL! 

I pullout out some great Stella and Rose DP and Verve's loopy bloom die as it was a perfect match to the flowers on the DP.  The sentiment is an old Rubber Soul stamp I've had for ages and have sorely  neglected, but today was its turn to shine as the length and font were perfect.

My faux stitching is from my All In A Row set and my 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 square card became a 4 3/4 x 4 3/4 card as I keep adding mattes LOL.

Super fun sketch, and if I were a betting woman, I think I would bet that my rubber arm will be twisted to use this sketch again to make a fall card with a leaf on it...I know...resistance is futile LOL!

Have a glorious day and thanks so much for stopping by to visit me today :)

Well actually a maple leaf probably would have worked just fine as well :) This is so pretty - very sweet~!

Marisa this is fantastic. The colours you picked and the layers but my cards for this sketch to shame! Great use of white space that gives an even crisper, fresh feeling. Love it!
