H2H Sketch Challenge

This week on the Heart 2 Heart Challenge Blog is the ever popular sketch challenge. The best thing about this challenge is that you get to choose which sketch you would like to use. You can either choose to use the round sketch like I did or use the rectangular sketch.

I was excited to pull out a clear card for this one. (I haven’t used one in a while and I forgot how much fun they are!) Are you tired of seeing my pink projects lately? What can I say? I just love the color pink. *Ü* I used the backside of the floral paper from the Sweetheart Paper Packet along with some Hollyhock Cardstock. Cotton Candy Cardstock really matches this paper better, but since I used some Hollyhock Grosgrain Ribbon, I wanted the cardstock to match.

The stamped image is from CTMH’s darling Piece of Cake set. I stamped it with Cocoa Ink and then colored it in with some CTMH markers. It is hard to tell from the photo, but I used a Silver Glitter Gelly Roll pen to color in the center of all of the flowers. In the light, the flower centers sparkle quite a bit.
