BasicGrey Challenges # 16 Sketch...Hey Cutie!!!

This week at BasicGrey Challenges blog, Martine, has come up with the most fabulous sketch! I hope you can play along with us!!!

Well, I was thrilled when my Magnolia Valentine stamps arrived...they are so stinkin' cute! So, I inked up, Tilda with Tag, in Tuxedo black Memento ink, stamped her on Georgia Pacific paper and coloured her with my Copics and Twinkling H2Os!

I made my card base from white Bazzill Basics Swiss Dots cardstock and teamed it up with some yummy BasicGrey Two Scoops pp, 6x6 pad! I thought this Cupid paper would be perfect for a little love inspired card and then I found this perfect little sentiment stamp in a set by CC designs called Sugarplum sentiments. I stamped it with the Tuxedo Black Memento ink in the middle of the tag!

I continued with the love theme and substituted the circle on the sketch for a heart that I cut on my QK Silhouette! I cut and embossed the square and scalloped square with my Nesties and adhered it with some pop-dots. Then I cut out Tilda and pop-dotted her on the square.

To finish things off I added a little bling with the crystal heart that I cut in half and adhered it to the square. The wide grosgrain ribbon is by America Craft and the white ribbon is from my stash. The Prima flowers are mounted with Making Memories heart brads and I added lots of Stickles here and there for a little more sparkle!!!!
Thanks for stopping by and seeing my very first BasicGrey DT contribution!!! I had a blast playing with this great sketch!!! Now it's your turn! Can't wait to see what you create!
