Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge and Luigi Blog Candy!

Whoopee...I got my replacement Cricut back this weekend (the original quit on me :( )  I had to play a wee bit-- and cut out a bunch of hearts with the multi-cut feature...just to play ya know! I made this card with the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.  It also fits into the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge #3 (Hearts)  I really liked the Sweet Sunday sketch...very clean and simple, my style. 

I cut out a black nestie circle, layered the hearts (the red hearts are embossed with the cb swiss dots folder)  and added some buttons tied with silver cording. Although it doesn't show very well, the side scallop piece  is a brushed silver cardstock from SU! The LOVE sentiment is embossed in white. I like how the points of these hearts make a flower in the center of this card -do you see it? (it's kind of like those darn  hidden 3D picture books-remember them? LOL)



 


I saw this absolutely super dooper amazing card made by my bloggin' buddy Mary over at My Cardz, My Therapy...my Passion and just knew it would make the  perfect Valentine for my pizza lovin' sweetie. You can see Mary's amazing card HERE! Be sure to leave her some appreciation for sharing her talent!
