So many challenges...

...so little time :)

This card is for TECC53 (a sketch) and this week's OCCC (to use two or more hearts on a project). Got it all covered :)

My base card is Whisper White with two layers of paper from the My Mind's Eye Designer Paper pad and then a layer of K & Co. paper called Smitten Heart Stripe. The next element is two patterns of DP. The focal image is from Hearts Galore by MFT and is stamped on Whisper White with Close To Cocoa ink and is cut/embossed with a rectangle Nestabilities die, layered on a scalloped rectangle, and then again on another plain rectangle, again using the DP. I punched a slot on the focal image and tied on a sheer peachy-pink-with-a-white-thread ribbon. I stamped a heart from the set on DP in Close To Cocoa and punched it out with a Martha Stewart punch and tied it to the ribbon with linen thread--the whole thing is popped up on 3M foam squares. Three white pearl flat backed hearts provide balance. Sweet paper, sweet sentiment, great sketch. What's not to like?

Thanks for dropping by!
