2 Sketches 4 You - Happy Valentine's Day cards and a Bonus Sketch from ME!! :)

Good Morning Everyone,

Today over at 2 Sketches 4 You - Laura has a fantastic sketch for you and the sponsor this week is the Cutting Cafe. It was so much fun to play along with all of these beautiful sentiments and fonts and images!
I really loved this sketch - there can be so many ways that this sketch is interpreted!

I especially loved the printable stamps from the All About Valentine's Day stamp set. The one that caught my eye was one stamp that had so many beautiful sentiments in different directions all expressing different words associated with Valentine's Day. I have been loving the Valentine's paper from MME and love the fact that in photoshop, you can change the color of the digital stamp to match the color of the paper you are going to use. After coloring the different sentiments, I also created a row of flowers (also from the same set) and used it to create this card:
Card Ingredients:
Paper: MME and Prism deep red
Accessoires: heart punch from Martha, dimensionals, bling, sakura pen, Ek success punch, corner chomper, brads, flower punch and glue dots

AND guess what - this week I am in charge of creating a bonus sketch - YIKES! I am definitely not much of a sketch artisite in any way - but had fun with my hand it it... I came up with this sketch and then created the card to go along with it. I used the sweet little birdies kissing and the sentiment: YOU and Me and also printed out the square background with all of the little dots (you know me and dots!!) and the sweet hearts on it. I printed it out twice so that I had a chance to cut out the hearts and to pop them up on some dimensionals. It was really fun to create two cards from the same color scheme - and I am loving the yellow in these valentine papers from MME! it makes everything so bright and fun :)

Card Ingredients:
Paper: MME and Prism deep red
Accessories: heart punch from Martha, dimensionals, bling, sakura pen, Ek success punch, corner chomper, brads, flower punch and glue dots
