SC263 Valentine


Hello!  I made this for today's Sketch Challenge on SCS.  I really like this layout!  I made the oval a bit bigger than the sketch because I wanted to use this gorgeous image from the Verve Hearts on Fire set.  I stamped the image with PTI Dark Chocolate, stamped the heart image separately and colored with a Copic marker, then popped it up with a Dimensional.  The dp is from the Basic Grey Bittersweet paper pad, and the ribbon is PTI.  I hope you like it, and thank you so much for stopping by today! 

Don't forget about the Your Next Stamp Blinkie contest going on now!  Check out Karen's blog to see how you can win a stamp set of your choice!!!

So pretty! I love that you don't have a sentiment on here so that you can use it for an anniversary, a wedding, or put a Valentine sentiment on the inside.....more possibilities!

It's so striking Kerri! LOVE, love, love this color combo (it's my fave)...I too like this layout and hope I have time to play along! Great stitching, lovely image, and my fave is that yummy ribbon!

Rebecca said...

The black stitching, and the fun polka dot ribbon and paper are just fabulous. Someday, maybe 100 years from now, I want to learn to stitch on my cards!

Elena said...
