I am entering this card into Ribbon Carousel Challenge blog's challenge #36, which was a sketch challenge.
Also entering it to Sweet Stampin' Challenge blog's "all that glitters challenge", in which they wanted us to incorporate glitter or sparkle. I added white glitter to the heart on the card, of which I'll show a close-up for in a bit.
Here's my card:
And here's the close-up, in which you can see the heart covered in white glitter:
I wanted to go for a masculine look, so used a palette of a rich dark red, cream, chocolate and white. Instead of ribbon, I used a coarse twine that comes from the hardware store. I got this sentiment from my stash of stamped images. I don't know who makes it. It came stamped in colored ink. The heart is popped up on mounting tape.
stamp: unknown Love sentiment stamp
card stock: Papertrey Ink- Fine Linen, Dark Chocolate; Georgia Pacific white; unknown dark red (probably Stampin' Up!)
