Wee Memories Challenge

Happy Friday! (Love this day of the week!)

When I saw the Get Sketchy, Scrappy Saturday Challenge over on the Wee Memories blog, I wanted to play along right away! This sketch is so sweet!



Well, it's taken me all week to finally get around to playing with it and this is what I came up with.



I used my favorite color combo and thought it would be fun to use a really bright green. I haven't inked up the Hero Arts Dots and Flowers in so long. . .way too long. . .I love that stamp! I stamped it in a light pink and clear embossed. The white, Hero Arts flowers and sentiment tag were distressed with bright green also. The heart is from the Heart Trio cling set, stamped on a piece of acetate, then layered onto some striped pink cardstock. I was just going to stamp it directly onto the striped paper but I wanted it to have some shine. I layered the whole panel onto some Doodlebug Petite Prints, polka dotted paper, before adhering it to the card base.

I'm also entering this into the Hero Arts February challenge which has a theme of love or friendship.

Thanks for coming by today! I really appreciate it! Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend! :)

Fabulous design, Barb!! The embossed dots and flowers came out beautiful! I tried that once but had to throw it out! This is one of my favorite color schemes!
