Sketch It Saturday

Hellooooo!  I hope you all had a most wonderful week.

I have been in the craft room this morning, thought I would enjoy a couple of hours me time.  I have to take Emily and a friend to the cinema later, they are going to watch Project Almanac.

Today's sketch is one by Viva La Verve for the first sketch of February.

I decided to have another play with some of the design sheets and papers off the fabulous Polkadoodles Work & Play 9 - Love & Kisses collection (links below).

I distressed all the edges of the papers with my Tim Holtz distressing tool and also inked them up. This pre-coloured topper is such a cutie, but she also comes in the collection as a digi, so that you can colour her up yourself.  

I also added some Sakura Stardust gel pen to the image and the backing paper. just to add a little sparkle.

For the inside, I used the same papers, made my banner into a panel for a message and left a little heart there too.

I did add some foam pads to the image topper to add a little depth to the card and of course the sentiment tickets!

Are you busy making valentines cards or looooove cards :-)
