Wednesday- SCS Card Sketch Challenge

Yes, It is Sunday, I am a few days late, work with me here... I wanted to give it a try to see how it would work. I had no luck downloading the sketch directly, so I had to print and scan it to post it. Then I had to actually make a card using the sketch. It did finally boot me into Valentine Mode though!!!

The sketch and all other information can be found at Splitcoast Stampers.

My card based on the sketch. I will tell you as much about the materials as I can recall. The base CS is DCWV from a stack. Both pattern papers are from a big pack of coordinating papers that have been in my stash for quite some time. Ribbon is from Wal-mart. Large stamped image is from Michaels $1 bin. Punched with EK whale of a punch. XOXO stamp is from a set of Valentine stamps purchased on clearance at JoAnn's a few years back. Ink is SU! Riding Hood Red, stamped off once to mute the color some. Small ovals were cut with oval & companion Coluzzle. Aren't I just a wealth of helpful information!
I do enjoy the sketch challenge. It is a very good way to help along in the design of your cards. Think of it as a recipe, but you can choose the ingredients. If you decide to make your own card for the challenge please link it in the comments for the rest of us to see! I will upload mine tomorrow, since SCS doesn't do uploads on Sunday's to give the moderators a break.
Take care!
