Sweet Sketch Wednesday: Digistamp Boutique

Sooooo, hopefully I have set this up to post at the right time this week - working out time zones has never been my strong point, but fingers crossed.

Here is my second offering for Sweet Sketch Wednesday:

I am still super excited about being a Design Team member and have spent may hours checking out everyone's entries whilst cowering on my sofa/in my craft room from the giant spiders that seem to have invaded my house recently.

Anyway, shall we stop going off on an tangent and get on to this week's challenge.  This week's challenge is sponsored by Digistamp Boutique, who are already one of my favourite digistamp providers and I took this opportunity to make a start on my Valentines cards, as I just love this image.

I think that this week's sketch is a great one, and it is this:

I am a huge fan of sketches as layout is something I can struggle with at times and the girls at SSW really do come up with some great sketches each week.  I thought that the sketch was very simple to use - straight edges are always easier in my opinion. 

The image I have used is Coco with Little Hearts.  I coloured it in with promarkers and added a wash background using broken china distress inks.

I used a red blank and papers from my stash.  I backed the image with red card and attached it to the card with sticky fixers to give the card an extra dimension.  I then added a red ribbon from my stash, as per the sketch.  I finished the card with two heart embellishments from my stash.

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

The Pink Elephant - Pink Red & White
Fashionista Challenge - Red
ABC Challenges - Inspiration
Glitter & Sparkle - Use a Digi

I could give this card to Phil for Valentines day, but I'm not too sure whether he reads this blog, and he will no doubt raid my card collection for a Valentines card and give me this card, even though I have told him he has free reign with my stash to make me a card himself, like he did last year.  I suppose we will just have to wait and see.

Happy Crafting!
