Today I met my friend Liz and we headed out to a fabric and yarn store in Surrey called Wineberry. Liz has been making these beautiful scarves that uses a special yarn that she could only find at this store. I was so impressed by the beautiful scarves that Liz has made ... as well as the many, many samples in the store itself, that I bought a ball of yarn and am going to try making one myself. I am a knitter, but haven't done much of it in the past year or so. We bought yarn and then went to a Greek restaurant nearby for lunch (New York, New York) - delicious!! Once back home, I headed to the art studio. For today's card, I am combining two challenges from SCS this week ... the color challenge (CC357) - Blushing Bride, Riding Hood Red and Baja Breeze ... plus the sketch challenge this week (SC367). The only change is that I don't have Blushing Bride so I used the closest color I had, Pink Pirouette. Hope you like.
SCS Sketch Challenge 367:
Here's my take on the above sketch (I added a couple of extra layers):
"Sending You Love"
Stamps: Valentine Defined, Easy Events (SU!)
Paper: Riding Hood Red, Whisper White, Pink Pirouette DP, red glimmer paper (SU!)
Ink: Riding Hood Red, Baja Breeze
Accessories & Tools: Sizzix heart buttons, Big Shot, Baja Breeze seam binding, adhesives, glue dots and dimensionals

I inked the sentiment from one of the Easy Events stamps using a Baja Breeze Stampin' Write marker and stamped onto the small piece of Whisper White cardstock. I stamped the heart flowers three times across the same piece, just below the sentiment. I mounted the image onto a thin frame of Riding Hood Red cardstock.
I cut the second panel from Pink Pirouette DP and framed it with a thin frame of Riding Hood Red cardstock.
I ran the red glimmer paper through my Big Shot with the heart button die-cut. I cut a piece of Baja Breeze seam binding in half (lengthwise - to make it thin), and threaded them through the holes in the heart buttons, tying a half-knot at the front.
I mounted all the pieces as shown in the picture above, popping up the main panel with dimensionals to add depth. The heart buttons were attached using glue dots.
