from the bottom of my heart

Hi!  I thought I would squeeze in a quick post before I go do my first school pick up of the day.  TGF has a new sketch over on SCS and my card today was inspired by it. 

The sketch was created by our Challenge Captain Peggy Toole.

This is my simple take of the sketch.  I used TGF's Blush Thanks and heat embossed it on a Cheery Lynn Heart diecut.  Then I also stamped and heat embossed those spots on the edges of the heart using TGF's Splotchy set. 

A little close up.  I added some pearls too.  The base of the card was impressed with PTI's woodgrain impression plate.

I hand wrote the sentiment on PTI's tag die cut and added that pretty flower I recently bought from Taj, a local store here.  The leaves are from Maya Road. 

I'm trying to be better about mentioning the actual products I use but I'm not in the habit of listing the Copic colors I used.  If that is something you want to know, leave a comment or email.  I'll try to better about it.  Just that after I color I just toss the pens back in the container!

Anyway, hope you join in on the sketch!  Click HERE for the link and the keyword info. 

Thanks for reading!

Wow, no coloring! But fabulous card nevertheless! Copics look difficult, I don't think I'm going there. I'll just admire your coloring :)

Eva this is just stunning! I love how you have stamped all of that text over the heart...the white really pops against the kraft. Beautiful job! :)

I looked at the sketch and couldn't wrap it around my head...I completely drew a blank. Yet, here you are with some fabulous inspiration on that same sketch. Great card!
