Yippee - finally time to have a play!!!

Hi everyone,

Well my craft room is now finally tidy (don't know how long it will stay that way). I do however definitely need some more storage space so hopefully that will happen in the not too distant future and I will have no excuse for making a mess.

Today I decided to have a play with the Stamping 411 sketch challenge. I like the concept of the card but not too sure about the execution. It may have something to do with the colours that I chose.

Here is the sketch.

Here is my take on it.

I have used a set from the Summer Mini "You are Loved". It isn't a set I was particularly taken with when I first saw it but it has definitely grown on me. It is also a set that is not just for Valentines Day. There are a lot of possibilities with it.

I have seen this gorgeous heart coloured in using Stampin' Write markers. Now as much as I love doing that, I am one for instant gratification so decided to ink the image up using just Real Red. The sentiment is from Tiny Tags.

I think when I make this card again I may emboss resist it but I can't see me doing that in time to resubmit for this challenge.

Materials Used: All Stampin' Up!
Stamps: You are Loved, Tiny Tags
Paper: Sahara Sand, Real Red, Pink Pirouette, Whisper White, Real Red DSP.
Ink: Real Red
Other: Perfect Polka Dots TEF, 1/8" Real Red Taffeta Ribbon,  Jewelry Tag Punch.

Thanks for looking.

'Til next time,
