Happy Valentine's Day!

Hello everyone! Mindy from Grammies Craft Room with you today. The Challenge this week is to use a sketch, and the one that Jennifer provided is awesome. I'm sure I will be pulling it out often.
Lets get Sketch-y
 I started out by placing my border cuts - from Ribbons and Rosettes - on my Gypsy. The larger on is the 2 x 6 inch  and the two smaller ones are 1 x 6 inch. I cut them out from 2 different papers, both from Hobby Lobby, to have a choice of layering, 
Next I used Paper Trimmings for the square - sized at 2 inches and the corner which is 1.5 inches, cutting both in red and white cardstock. I only used the shadow cut for the corner, as once again I wanted it just a little to small for the cut to come out right. I ended up using the little hearts that were left on the mat from the 2 inch border, for the top layer of the corner.
I used heart stamps from Stampin Up on the patterned papers and punched out with the Stampin Up punch. The sentiment is also from SU and punched with their punches as well. The only other embellishments I used was Glossy Accents and some Tim Holz ink on the edges of the border cuts.
I used dimensionals to pop up the square, the corner and the sentiment.
I can't wait to see how the rest of the team uses this awesome sketch. I hope you will give it a try and maybe put a link to your creation in the comments so we can admire your work !!
