I haven’t played along the Waltzingmouse Sketch challenge. When I saw yesterday’s sketch I just had to play. A heart inside a circle? LOVE that!

I cut and embossed a heart with a Classic Heart Nestabilities dies out of Cosmo Cricket Odds & Ends paper. It was sanded and adhered to a scalloped heart cut and embossed out of  Neenah Solar White cardstock with a Classic Scalloped Heart die.

A 2″ wide strip of Odds & Ends paper was adhered to another piece of the same paper pack. The paper was cut and embossed with the smallest of the Grand Circle Nestabilities die. The edges of the paper were sanded and the layers were stitched to a piece of Solar White cardstock that had been hand cut into a slightly larger circle. White Crochet Lace was adhered to the left hand side of the vertical strip before the layers were adhered to the Kraft cardstock card base, cut and embossed with a Grand Scalloped Circle Nestabilities die.

The heart layers were adhered to the left hand side of the card. A sentiment from You’re Lovely was stamped in  Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with a Fancy Tag die. The inner part of the sentiment was sponged with Antique Linen Distress ink and two small flowers of that set were stamped in the same color for added texture.

The sentiment was adhered to the lower left of the image and three small Zva Creative Flowers were adhered to the lower left of the sentiment. Parts of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day! I am helping my husband put the finishing touches on painting our living room. It looks so much better now then it did when he started.
Hugs and smiles
