Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge 55 - Week of July 9, 2011 I Love You

This is the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge for Week 55 beginning July 9, 2011.  I made my center design a distressed heart.  I stamped the love tag in the middle of the heart - making sure not to ink the frame or the "No. 9" since they would get cut off when I cut out the die.  I inked the edges and the embossed heart with Ranger Distress Ink  - Worn Lipstick.  Then I sanded the embossed parts to let the cream color of the paper show through.

For the ribbon side accents I zig zagged an organza wire ribbon and secured it to the back of the heart.  To make the window on the tag in the center I placed an oval die inside the center of the Fancy Phrases Tag  and ran it through my die cut machine.

When I started with the heart I automatically went into pink mode.  I didn't want to over do it so I threw in alot of neutral - which is unusual for me, but I am happy with the end result.  I hope you like this one - as always I thank you for your kindness and inspiration.  I hope you have a great week!
