This week I had my eye on a couple different challenges and decided to try a sketch challenge first. I decided to go with the challenge from the Get Sketchy Blog. Here is the sketch…
|Get Sketchy Challenge #70|
And here is my card!

This card was another opportunity to continue exploring the super cute My Silly Valentine set from Lawn Fawn. Hopefully I can make a card with all the stamps in this set before Valentines Day (that’s my own personal challenge). I had a few new things to try on this card. Number one, a new boarder punch. I really love the small scallops with the tiny holes. Number two, Glossy Accents! I have seen this used but never had used it myself, so I got some and gave it a try. I like the dimensional affect it gives the little pears, So Shiny! And number three, Copics! Since starting my blog hopping journey I have become enamored with copic markers. I have seen many other papercrafters use these markers with beautiful results. At first I thought, “what’s so cool about these markers?” But the more I saw them sued the more inadequate my markers seemed. So I took the plunge and invested in a few Copic Markers. It is safe to say that I love them, and can’t wait to get some more colors to expand my very small starter collection.
