This morning I saw this week's sketch had posted over at Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenges and was immediately inspired to get my craftin' groove on!
I have had a bunch of new Stampin' Up! goodies just sitting on my desk for entirely too long now, including this pretty DSP. It's called Love and even though it isn't in the catalog, you can stil order it (item #124156). I kept the card pretty clean and simple, because I think it lets all of the cool elements of the sketch stand out. Sometimes simple is a good thing, right?
I did run the Real Red strip through the paper crimper for some added texture. Ok, is it just me or does using the paper crimper for anything immediately make you want to take a trip to Starbucks? The texture reminds me of the little sleeves they add to the cups. Just me? Hmmm, maybe I am just looking for an excuse to get a mocha today. I also added some glitter to the heart in the sentiment (from A Happy Heart, ret.) then covered the little circle in Crystal Effects for some shine.
Here is the inside of the card, too:
Thanks for stopping by today! :)
