'Cause it's a bittersweet symphony, this life...

Happy Tuesday, yall! Today I bring you a card based on the Jacksonbelle Embellishments team sketch for this week. Fun stuff!

I used the clear Heart set from Inkadinkado...also available in wood mounted rubber (Scribble Heart). I love this set! Lots of adorable hearts for all your Valentine cards!
I inked the heart in Pixie Dust Versamagic, then inked the edges in Perfect Plumeria. After inking the edges in Pretty in Pink, Purely Pomegranate and Chocolate Chip, I stamped the image again and cut it out to pop up over the top. The edges were distressed with my scissors.

Basic Grey Bittersweet was the perfect choice for my card base. I stitched it to the chocolate chip layer, then layered onto the  Neenah Classic Crest layer. I added a Pomegranate layer, embossed with the D'vine Swirls embossing folder, then layered onto the card. After assembling the card, I added Candle Light Shimmerz to the heart and to the Thickers (from American Crafts).

Don't forget to check out what the rest of the team did with the sketch!


I'll be back in a bit with a Verve Preview...stay tuned!
