Love this Sketch

Hello, and Happy Monday!

I have a card for last week's color challenge (basic gray, bermuda bay, and strawberry slush) and the Freshly Made Sketches challenge.  I combined them into a Valentine card.  All of the supplies I used are from Stapin' Up!

My card base is basic gray.  I added a layer of whisper white, which is dry embossed with the fancy fan folder.  I used my heart framelits to cut out 2 hearts.  One is simply a solid strawberry slush heart.  I stamped this heart image from "You Are Loved," using my markers to color it.  I wanted to add just a few bermuda bay highlights.  The framelit was larger than this stamp, so I sponged the edges with more bermuda bay, then popped it up with dimensionals.  The sentiment is from "Three Little Words" punched with the small oval.  I used the retired triple heart punch for the small heart.  Grabbing my canister of ribbon scraps, I found this polka dot ribbon, and just trimmed it up a bit.  

I really like this sketch, and may create some more Valentines using it.  I also love these bright colors against the neutral gray and white.  Hope you like the combination of these challenges!
