RI Sketch Challenge - Love

Happy Wednesday to you!  It’s WHAT IF? Wednesday again and time for a new sketch challenge!   For my card I used the Love Stencil image (1222-G).  I stamped the heart portion of the stamp first using a SU marker, then I stamped the 'LOVE' portion of the stamp on top of it (it's below the heart on the actual stamp) using Versamark and gold embossing powder.  I painted the edges of my Inchie Plus square with Sargent Liquid Metal gold paint.

The patterned paper strips are from Scenic Route and the pink panels are Coredinations card stock that I embossed using the Swiss Dots embossing folder and then sanded to reveal the lighter pink core.  I added some heart shaped rhinestones in the corners and called it done!  A nice, quick Valentine's Day card!

We'd love for you to play along with us!  All you have to do is create a card using this layout and post it over on The House That Stamps Built by February 5th.  The details and the sketch are over there on today's post, along with the sample cards the rest of the team made - be sure to check it out!

Hope your week is going well!  I'm gearing up to head out to CHA - let me know if any of you will be there!

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy the rest of your week!

Robin! You and I both used the same stamp image on our cards today. How cool! :) I LOVE the way you chose to stamp the word "love" within the actual heart. What a great idea! I will definitely have to try doing that too. Wonderful work, as always!
