SKETCH 40: HEARTS!


Happy February, and happy sketch challenge day! :) We're all about hearts this weekend here at Limelight, and we hope you'll join us for the fun! :)

My card started with a white PTI base and a mat of Basic Gray (SU). Layered onto that, of course, is none other than my favorite Basic Grey Sugar Rush patterned paper! Seriously...love this stuff! I used this striped sheet to give the effect of the strips of paper in the sketch. I certainly could have done strips of paper, too, but I like this! :) I used the heart image from the December Unity Store Kit, Sweet Affections for my heart. I love how swirly and pretty this is. :) I embossed the heart with white embossing powder, cut it out, and popped it up. The "I'll always love you" sentiment is from the January store kit. I embellished the corner with a few Hot Pink Rhinestones and a cute rhinestone heart that my friend Jessica Russell sent me a while back!

The Deets:
**Use the sketch above and try to incorporate your favorite HEARTS!! (If you don't have any hearts, we hope you'll play along anyway!)
**Key word for SCS upload is LLPC040.
