Cherish...

Cherish

Found this fun Sweet Shop sketch in my sketch file and decided to give it a go.  Opted for a little more dramatic Valentine's Day card made with red and black.  Even used two more goodies from my "to be used later" pile - yeah! 

Had a big issue with the sentiment.  Swapped it out about three times as the font just didn't match the rest of the card - ever happen to you?  I'm not totally satisfied with this one (due to the sentiment panel issue), but ran out of options, so this is what I had to to with... :(

Good news is, this card is in the past and I can move on to another one!  That's what I love about his hobby :)

Have a fabulous day everyone and thanks for visiting today.  Your company is always appreciated!

I think it turned out wonderfully! LOL if I can't get a font to work...I normally leave it off. I know the frustration for sure!

Benzi said...

I'm sure we all have those issues and worse. LOL I know I do. Your card is so pretty, Marisa, and the little hearts on your paper are so sweet.

I like the card! I know what you mean about not being able to find the right sentiment...and it is completely silly in my craft room where I have been collecting stamps for ages.

Those pops of red really make this card stunning!

What a beautiful card! I have that same issue about not finding the right sentiment....alot! I usually end up finishing a card in 2-3 hours instead of 1 hour, because I can't decide on what to use! LOL!

'Fun' is not a word I'd use to describe this sketch, lol! Pretty scary, I'd say!! Once again you've 'nailed it' and your card is fabulous!

There's nothing like classic black, red and white, Marisa! Love how you've tied in all the hearts...embossing folder, designer paper, die cut! I know what you're saying when it comes to sentiments...it just has to feel right...font...size etc. Have a great weekend!

I know what you mean about trying to find a sentiment to match the style of the card. I think this one works beautifully! Love the embossed black panel and perfect red bow.
