Love is Forever

This week's Card Positioning Systems challenge, Sketch CPS #254, is sponsored by Lil'Inker Designs.  I really like the sketch, and it is perfect for using scraps.  (That's exactly what I did!)  However, due to the art show I'm currently featured in, I hadn't had a chance to work on my card design.  Well, I finally started working on it yesterday evening and finished it this afternoon - Whoop!

I began with a pink note card and pasted the 2 yellow blocks.  I pasted the botanical print block over the 2 yellow ones.  Then, I crimped a tan colored band, pasted it across the 3 blocks, and drew stitching lines on the 4 pieces.  Next, I made an ATC for the focal point on a prussian blue piece of card-stock and punched the upper border to simulate a tear sheet.  I decorated a wooden heart with a hand painted heart punch and matted it with a text print block.  I centered it on the ATC, along with a strip of text featuring the phrase "Love is forever," and drew more stitch lines.  Finally, I attached the ATC to the card with dimensional foam dots.  As a finishing touch, I made a small slit on the card's spine to thread and wrap a piece of cord around the card.  I tied it with a square knot.

I want to thank the CPS team for sharing their creativity with the world.  I hope you enjoy the design I came up with by using this sketch, so please let me know what you think.  Blessings!
