CPS challenge



this week. I took the sketch pretty literally, pulling out CTMH Notebook paper pack, Heartthrob and Romantic Backgrounds stamp sets. I used a SheetLoad Frosted Blank for my card base. I distressed the edges of the paper and sponged Desert Sand ink to distress even further. I crumpled the top sheet to make it look older. The heart is double stamped, first in CTMH White Daisy ink on black cardstock. Then I used Sparkle-n-Sprinkle Golden Follies Embossing Powder on white cardstock and cut it out, pop-dotting it on the black cardstock. A small piece of CTMH Hollyhock twill ribbon on the bottom of the card. I also stapled the paper layers to make it look more aged and old, like someone had found it in an attic somewhere and it was falling apart and they put it back together. A romantic card from a long-lost love that was kept in a box for years!
