you send me soaring


What fun to be chosen as last week's "Monkey Princess" at A La Card Monkey for creating THIS CARD. Those of us whose cards were featured were asked to be a guest designer for an upcoming sketch challenge. It has been awhile since I have had the time (or motivation) to participate, but I always love being able to have a chance to use a sketch to create a card. It definitely helps with "card maker's block".

This week's challenge is Love + Sketch #93 and the sketch looked like this...


I decided to ink up my new Send Me Soaring stamp set from the Occasions Mini Catalog and came up with this fun to create card...


{Heart Banner}

Stamp Set: Send Me Soaring (available in wood & clear mount)
Paper: Whisper White, Pink Pirouette, Baja Breeze, Melon Mambo, Cheerful Treat DSP (hostess exclusive)
Ink: Melon Mambo, Baja Breeze (clouds & inked edges), Early Espresso
Accessories: Sponges, Linen Thread, Stampin' Dimensionals,
Tools: 1" Circle punch, 1-1/4" Circle punch, Heart to Heart punch, Owl punch (for extra small heart with sentiment)


I'm also linking this Valentine's Day card to...


Spend some time in your stamp room and put together a Valentine's Day card and then head on over and link up with the rest of us! And, don't forget to go visit other stamper's awesome inspiration!

The 'soaring' idea with the kite is too cute. And I love the idea of using hearts for the pennants!
