And, it's Wednesday again!  I don't know how that keeps happening!!  Anyway, since it is Wednesday, we have another What If? Wednesday challenge for you from The House That Stamps Built.  This week it is a fun sketch:
My brother and his wife will be celebrating their 10th anniversary next week and I thought the circles in the sketch would look perfect as hearts to help them celebrate.  
That's one of the great thing about sketches, as long as the basics are there you can make them do whatever you want.  I stamped the "Love" in what I thought was going to be a bit more subtle pink than it turned out to be, but that's ok, because now it really stands out.  I masked the smallest dotted rectangle from the new "Frames--Rectangles & Marquee Series" and stamped it in a nice pale gray just to add a little bit off interest and ground the sentiment a bit.  It doesn't do a lot, but it does help take your eye away from all the white in the bottom of the oval.    I hope you'll get a chance to play along with our sketch this week.  Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Stamps: Repeat Impressions "Dotted Rectangle Frame (sm)" and "LOVE"
Dies: Spellbinders "A2 Filigree Delight"; MFT "Stitched Heart STAX" largest heart; Sweet n Sassy Stamps 2 smaller heart dies

Pixie's Crafty Workshop #243--anything goes with snippets (all three of the hearts were cut from very small snippets of patterned paper, and the white oval was a scrap.)
MFP #34--anything goes
A Bit More Time To Craft #26--anything goes
Word Art Wednesday #244--anything goes with uplifting sentiment
Craft Dee BowZ--anything goes with handmade bow

This is a great anniversary card! I couldn't agree more about sketches. They are often times my most used jumping off place.
