Jen's Sketch Challenge 02-06-10

Jen's sketch challenge is back - and with some incredible prizes! There is a prize package worth over $200 up for grabs. Please visit Jen's site for details. She's also looking for the next Designer of the Month.

As if her sketch's weren't motivation enough to play along :).

I went with a Valentine's card for this week's challenge. I really like the combination of dark brown with cream and pink and have been using that combination on all of my V-day cards this year.
I started with a base of Chocolate Chip CS and then added a panel of patterned paper from Making Memories. I added a strip of Very Vanilla CS and below that, using my Sizzix Scalloped Circle in the Cuttlebug, I cut a piece of Bazzil CS and then trimmed it to fit the bottom of the card. I used my Coluzzle to cut the circles and that cute heart in the center was actually part of a Unity Stamp of a house with hearts in the center. I just cut the hearts out and then gave them a little glitz with some Stickles. The sentiment is from a Hero Arts stamp set and I gave them a little glitz with the same stickles as well. I finished it off with some buttons and pearls and then rounded the edges with my Corner Chomper, which I believe is my new favorite tool!
Hope you enjoyed :)
