Love is a Promise

Good morning everyone!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend, and your Monday started off with a bang!

Today we start a new challenge at Paper Makeup's Digi Makeover challenge blog!  We had a fabulous turn out last week for our Anything Goes challenge.  Thanks to everyone that participated!
This week we have a lovely sketch for you to use on your cards!  I LOVE sketches!  I'm finding more and more that without a sketch, card designs don't come as easily to me.  So I have a large folder with tons of sketches saved and ready at my fingertips to flip through when I need a good one.
Here is what we are working with:
Pretty clean and simple sketch right?!  It offers a lot of possibilities.  You can leave it simple or go crazy with all sorts of embellishments.  Whatever your style!
I kept my card pretty simple, mostly because it needs to go out in the mail and postage here is pretty crazy...if it's not flat (like flat flat...) it costs $2.10!!  So I made sure I didn't go wild with my card :)
I really love it even in its simplicity.  I used the Color Kid Valentine image from Paper Makeup Stamps.  She is so sweet and even though her title is valentine...I think it's pretty versatile in it's theme.
I paired it with a love sentiment that I felt could be good for a wedding.  I didn't want a plan "congrats on your wedding" sentiment...I wanted something a little more, so when I scrolled past this one in my sentiments folder, I knew it would work perfect :)

I cut the image with a spellbinders die and punched out some hearts for my simple embellishment.  I covered the hearts and the heart in the image with star dust stickles and that was it!  See, simple :)

Be sure to stop by Paper Makeup this week and join in our sketch!
Thanks for visiting!
