CSS Sketch Challenge Hop

Hello!
Welcome to another Gina K CSS Alumni blog hop! If you came from the talented Peggy Wainman's blog, you are right on track. If not, please go to Stamp TV and start at the very beginning. I do not want to miss any of these fabulous projects the CSS gals are sharing tonight!

For this hop we were challenged to create a card based on the sketch below that our fellow CSS member Melissa Cash designed.
I decided to jump ahead a couple months and create a Valentine's cards with this sketch. I also turned the sketch into a 5x5 card.
Stamps: Gina K
Paper: Gina K, Basic Grey, Copic X-press It
Ink: Memento, Copic
Other: Spellbinders Labels 15 & Hearts, Corner Round Punch

I used 3 different stamps sets for my card, Fairy Tales, Lovely Labels 2 and Sung From the Heart. The cardstock is Gina's Pure Luxury Red Hot, Smokey Slate, White and Bubblegum Pink. The pattern paper is Basic Grey's Sugar Rush.

The heart with wings was colored with copics, R35, R37, R39/E70, E71, E74.

The next stop on the hop is to the fabulous Tera Fujan.

Thank you so much for hopping by!!
