2 Sketches 4 You

If you are a cardmaker, you've probably heard of 2 Sketches 4 You *link to your right*. They are having the 1st annual Ultimate Card Showdown. And an amazing prize to give away to the winner! So of course I had to throw my hat into the ring! I started out doing a baby card and voila it turned into a 4th of July card. That's the beauty of crafting, you can make ANYTHING.
Here's Laura's sketch:

And here is my creation:


I flipped the sketch and used Marks Paper Co, Melissa Frances, and Jenni Bowlin paper. I used a Jenni Bowlin die-cut and Melissa Frances rub-ons. Plus some Martha Stewart ink and my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots Folder. All of the sewing is handstitched.
Enjoy!

That's a huge jump from a baby card to 4th of July but it turned out great. I love the heart. Good luck.
