A VALENTINES SKETCH CARD

Good morning! Well, it is FREEZING and RAINING here again today so it is a good day to be lazy and hang around in my scrap room (of course, I could clean and do laundry - naaah!). Today I want to share a card I made for a sketch challenge over at Angel's blog Angelosity. If you have never been to her blog, go over and check it out, she does some cute things. The challenge was to make a Valentines Day card so I decided to make one for a really good friend of mine who I miss very much now that I have moved to California. She is a sweetheart! So, here it is! Whattya think?? I like the way it turned out! I used some more of the Berry Bliss DP because all of it is just sooo pretty! I also used two stamp sets - one is called Stitched Exotics and the other one is a Hostess Set called For a Friend which I thought was perfect for this card and gave me the sentiment I needed. I hope you like it!

Paper - Kraft, Regal Rose, Close to Cocoa, Whisper White, Berry Bliss Dp
