Tuesday Morning Sketches #133

Good Morning!  We have a fabulous challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches - it's the Judged Challenge this week and Jessica created a fantastic sketch.  Per the note from Jessica, when she created the sketch she had a 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 square card plus a little scrapling in mind.  Now it's the Judged Challenge which means there's a twist to it.  Marie brought us the twist.  Since it's 2/14 - she made the challenge to be....

2 (ribbons) 1 (embellishment) 4 layers

I figured out that to get a scrapling, you create a regular 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 card.  Cut it down to be 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 then you're left with a piece that is perfect for the scrapling part.  Here's what I made....

We are sponsored by DRS Designs and I was given this adorable image to play with.  Isn't he just the sweetest?!  I love how my card turned out.

This also fits a couple of my other favorite challenges.  Raise the Bar said to create with Chocolate & Roses
and iCopic said to add hearts.

So please come play along with us - spread some love, too.  Afterall, it's Valentine's Day.
