a big heart

I made this card for Beate's weekend sketch challenge. Check out her blog to play along! This is a great layout! I used more of my Cloud 9 dp....I just love the embossed hearts & the color. I chose a chocolate chip card base...it's just normal card size...5 1/2 in. x 4 1/4 in. I used my markers & blender pens to color in the image. I used clear embossing powder on the heart & colored it with a regal rose marker so it would match the hearts in the paper! I added my sentiment with some ribbon & a small heart. It needed something in the corner to even it out so I used my photo corner punch to add a little something & added diamond stickles to the brads to make 'em sparkle. Have a great weekend!

Great job on the sketch! I love how you embossed the heart in the image to match the paper and how you attached the ribbon to the sentiment.
