{SSSC51} Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!

Even though you've been encouraging the "distressed" kick I've been on this week, I've decided to change it up today and give you a CLEAN & SIMPLE Valentine especially for Karen Giron's fabulous SWEET SUNDAY SKETCH CHALLENGE! Karen's sketch was just perfect for my new I {Heart} Hearts set by Stampin' Up! The most difficult task was trying to decide which of the 8 heart stamps to use! :)
I've used Stampin' Up! real red cardstock as the base and layered on pretty in pink. Do you like the patterned paper? It's Sending Love Specialty Designer Paper by Stampin' Up! Each sheet in the collection shines with glittery designs! I stamped the two outside hearts with Pretty in Pink and clear embossed them. The center "friend" heart was stamped in Rose Romance, clear embossed, cut out and attached with dimensionals. I could have used the same colors, but I preferred the contrast.

You're all encouraged to join in the fun and play along with this challenge. If you need a bit more inspiration to spark your creativity, blog on over to Karen's blog ~ the Sweetest Thing ~ and there you will find all the links to her Sweet Sunday Stamper's!

I'm still working out the details on the RIBBON SHARE! I appreciate all the interest and will be getting back to you ASAP! :)

Wishing you all a SWEET SUNDAY!!

Smiles 2 U!

Beautiful card, Pam! That set is on my wishlist! I received my minis from you-thanks! I've been a little under the weather but as soon as I can I'm going to try my best to get to the PO so I can mail out the little package I have for you.
Hope Mr. Wonderful is keeping you warm!
