I Heart You

I decided to try my hand at a sketch challenge today. I subscribe to a few challenge pages but never seem to get around to making a card and linking it up. But today I managed to do it!

The Global Design Project Challenge this week is by Brian King. He is a fellow demonstrator from the Atlanta area and he is so talented! I love his clean and simple cards. He chose to go with a color challenge. That leaves your layout up to you. Yikes!

These colors are perfect for a Valentine’s Day card in my opinion. I kept it simple and it was easy to get 5 of these stamped and assembled in a short amount of time. That’s my kind of card!

i love you

I used a new product on the butterfly – Wink of Stella. It adds just the right amount of sparkle without having to use glitter. One other new item I used is part of our Project Life suite of stamps. These stamps are designed for memory keeping but they work just as well on cards. This one is called Memories in the Making. I love the bold scribble circle and the sweet I Heart You saying.

Here is a close – up of the butterfly.

Sweet and sparkly!

Thanks Brian for a fun color challenge. I hope to try more of GDP challenges in the future.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy Stamping,
