So…here is this week's sketch.  Make up a sample using our sketch, then upload your creation over on Create with Connie and Mary!




Here is my take on the sketch!



I used the fabulous set, Filled with Love, available as a bundle with the Love Patterns Designer Paper only until January 24th!  With the purchase of both the stamp set and designer paper, you also get a free package of Bitty Buttons!


I used a base of Basic Gray cardstock.  I cut a piece of Love Impressions Designer Paper in the XO pattern.  I added Real Red sides punched with the Dotted Ribbon Punch.  I wrapped some Real Red Satin Ribbon around and tied with a knot.  For my focal point, I inked up the flower stamp from Filled with Love with Basic Gray on the stem and Real Red for the hearts and stamped on Whisper White.  I punched it out with the Decorative Label Punch.  I stamped Be My Valentine (again from Filled with Love) with Real Red next to the flowers.  I layered the Decorative Label on the medium oval from the Ovals #2 Die and popped it up with Stampin' Dimensionals!  Finally, I added two Rhinestone Jewels to the heart flowers!


Make sure to check out the Challenge Team samples AND don't forget to leave a comment TODAY (Thursday) on Create with Connie and Mary for your chance to win a FREE subscription to the Occasions Edition!

I love how you used this big print on the DSP!  The little bling on the flower hearts is a perfect touch.
