Mercy's sketch

Hi everyone! Happy Friday! Today's post is from a sketch challenge over at Mercy's site. It's also the weekly challenge at Late Night Stampers. The design team at LNS challenged us to make a manly Valentine card. Since my husband likes glitter and pink, I did not find that challenging at all. So I challenged myself not to use them.

Here is Mercy's sketch and the card I made following the layout. I wasn't thrilled with it so I changed it a bit. I used Real Red for the card base, followed with Black then some of the yummy new DP from SU. All the layers were outlined using my silver marker. I then cut out the scalloped rectangle nestie out of black, used my swiss dot embossing folder and then outlined the scallops, again with the silver. I embossed the heart from the Always set with silver embossing, cut it out with my colozzule, outlined in silver and popped it up with dimensionals. I also through in a ribbon, 1" black circle (outlined in silver) and a button.

Ain't it cute :-)
Thanks for stopping by
