Sweet Sunday

It’s been awhile since I made a card for Karen Giron’s Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. This is week #101. I haven’t made any Valentine’s cards yet, so thought I’d better get on it. This is a great, simple sketch and I can see kicking it up a notch or just keeping it really clean and simple. I decided to go with the latter, since I’m going to give this card to my DH and he doesn’t like masculine cards with ribbon. I hope he doesn’t mind the brads! Here’s the sketch:

I recently picked up a 6 x 6 pack of patterned paper at Dollarama. It had some nice designs and some I know I wouldn’t use. It only cost me $1.25, so I really couldn’t pass it up. I decided to use this patterned paper, since I wanted to keep the card as non-feminine as possible, while still making it seem like a Valentine’s card. Here is what I came up with:

Here is how the card came together:

Card Stock – 110 lb. white Strathmore, Early Espresso (SU)
Patterned Paper – Dollarama
Ink – Early Espresso
Stamp – Heart by Inkadinkadoo
Accessories – Oval Spellbinders Nestabilities, Heart brads (Dollarama), dimensionals

That’s it! Thanks for coming by for a look. Have a great day!
