I Heart You

I'm back with a new challenge from Tuesday Morning Sketches.  To kick off the new year, we are having each designer pick a sketch for the first 7 challenges.  Since my name starts with "A",  I am up first!  I chose Sketch #190 from March 19th of last year.  I love that you can dress it up or down!

I decided to go clean and simple and used a new set from Doodle Pantry called Loving Critters. I printed a pre-colored image and some matching DP and went to work.  The image is die cut and mounted, then accented with glitter.  The banners are secured with red brads.

Image: Doodle Pantry "Loving Critters"
Ink: Printer
Paper: G.P. 110, PTI Pure Poppy, Doodle Pantry Digital DP
Embellies: Spare Parts Brads, Art Glitter in "Angel Dust", Martha Stewart Crystal Fine Glitter
Extras: Spellbinder's Nestabilities, EK Success 3D Dots

Do you ever get done with a project and think, "That just isn't right?"  Here's a peek at my first try...I decided the white card base just didn't work.  Isn't it amazing what a difference a little color makes?

I hope you will check out the rest of the DT's creations and challenge details, then play along!

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

Send a Smile 4 Kids: Valentines 4 Kids
The Crafter's Cafe: Animal Friends
Word Art Wednesday: Anything Goes

Thank you for stopping by!

That image is so, so cute! I'm going to have to check it out. My older daughter LUVs penguins so I know she'd adore a card made with this little fellow. I agree that the addition of the red really made the card POP! Good choice!

Love both versions--fun and fabulous!

Super cute Valentine card Angela! Great coloring! I like both versions, I am a slow card maker, so when it doesn't turn out the way I envision it (which happens a lot!) I usually don't have time to make another!
