Get Sketchy Scrappy Saturday Challenge....

Hi friends! As I write my post today we are having a huuuuge winter storm here in the Midwest. I am sitting in my studio looking out at a BLIZZARD! Kinda pretty though as long as I don't have to be out in it. I got to leave work early and I don't have to work tomorrow so I get to spend some time doing what I love. :)

Wee Memories is hosting their Get Sketchy Scrappy Saturday Challenge based off of the sketch below. I have been busily working on Valentine gifts using some of PTI's Simple Valentine paper pack which I LOVE! I know, I know you are probably all getting tired of seeing me use this on most of my posts lately but I just can't get enough of it. It just makes me HAPPY. :)

I started with a card base using DeNami's red cardstock. It has a little bit of texture which I like.... adds just a bit of interest. I added some layers using PTI's perfect match cs in white and hibiscus burst. Before adding my Simple Valentine patterned paper I snipped the corners with SU corner punch and then added some red brads from my stash to each corner. Using a strip of companion paper from the Simple Valentine collection I added some pure poppy scallop strips that I had cut using PTI's small scallop border die. Then I layered the strip with some hibiscus burst saddle stitched ribbon and added the Love You sentiment from PTI's Simple Valentine stamp set which I adhered using PTI's pure poppy twine.

While I was out shopping at Michael's the other day I ran across these cute petite doilies/tags from Martha Stewart. 

Aren't they just the cutest!  I thought one of these cuties would finish off my card nicely. I adhered a medium white cs heart onto a large pure poppy felt heart cut with my newly purchased heart prints die from PTI. Every card has to have a button right?... so I added one of DeNami's bubblegum boutique buttons with a little pure poppy bakers twine bow. 

Hope you like it! Make sure to hop on over to the Wee Memories blog and join in fun.
