Colour Q & Sketch Challenge




A quick post before heading off to work with a clean and simple masculine valentine!  I knew I wanted to incorporate this heart border Die-Namics die by MFT, so went with some inlaid pieces of Cherry Cobbler CS against the black outline.


I used the Colour Q Challenge colors (red, black, newsprint and a neutral) and paired it with the SCS Sketch Challenge.  The
patterned paper was perfect since newsprint was part of the houndstooth design (from My Mind's Eye "Filled With Love" 6x6 pad).  I black embossed the

sentiment from Verve's Love Notes set; the arrow is from Crushin' by Reverse Confetti. 
The vertical strip is a piece of vellum with torn edges. The shiny gold sequin heart doesn't show up well in the photo, but I wanted a wee bit of added sparkle and shine!  To add some texture, I looped some red jute twine behind the popped sentiment circle.  The finished card is 4 3/4" square.

Have a blessed day and thanks for popping in...

I really like your card. Cute sentiment inside the circle and the red jute is so pretty tucked behind the circle.
