Another wonderful sketch from Crafts 4 Eternity for today! I hope you all go and give it a try I bet it challenges you to step outside the normal box we tend to keep ourselves in! Why? It is a long card! I like making them but it is a challenge sometimes to use up the space and not be bare looking. This is a great sketch to give you a place to put things, while still allowing open space it doesn't look "nekkid"

he he tricked you by only taking a close up - cause I wanted you to see all the shimmer on the pink paper! How did I do that? Pearl Ex Macropearl! I rubbed it all over the pink! The stamp is from TAC called Hedgehog Blocks (T-877) I stamped it with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then I colored it in with a combination of my Slick Writer pen in Pink and a Sakura Gelly Roll Pen in white.

The tag is cut from the cuttlebug dies for sliders and I mounted it on a full circle to give it a matted look. Ribbon is from my January monthly club package from Really Reasonable Ribbon!
Added a few bling pieces at the top and another strip of ribbon and here is what I ended up with!

I will be adding this one to the Valentines box to go with the other for the blog candy I am having right now! They cards so far are great and I love the little lines people are adding to them! I hope more start pouring in!
