Sketch Frenzy Friday 012811

Friday!! Time for another Sketch Frenzy Friday challenge. Here is my creation for this week, looking somewhat crooked because the scanner doesn't like the button :)

Based on this sketch shared with us by Robbie Rubala

My card base is Early Espresso with a background layer of Riding Hood Red that was texturized with the "Friend" Texturz Plate (from the Texture Plates #4 set). After texturizing, I lightly dabbed Very Vanilla craft ink on, hoping to just highlight the words. I also sponged the edge with Very Vanilla. Next I inked the Be My Valentine heart with Riding Hood Red ink. I didn't feel like cleaning and stamping again in Espresso, so I grabbed a blender pen and removed the Riding Hood Red ink from the words and used my Early Espresso marker to ink them. The heart was cut out and attached with dimensionals to a small panel that has a Crumb Cake base and Espresso script DSP (from the Botanical Gazette pack). The button is from the Deck the Halls Big Button set (Holiday Mini) and has a 1/8" Early Espresso Taffeta ribbon knotted in it. Across the bottom, an Early Espresso Satin ribbon under a Victoria Crochet Trim.

I LOVE IT! Thought I had ordered the heart stamp, but didn't. I guess now I'll have to!

Great card! I love that you cut out the heart, and the layered ribbon is gorgeous!

Beautiful! Love the "distressed" inked edges and the use of the definition background.
