Heartfelt Thanks - card

There is the CUTEST sketch challenge happening this week over in The Greeting Farm's Splitcoast Stampers forum... I couldn't wait to get started on it.  It's definitely being added to my favorite sketches list!

Sorry about the bluish tint.  It just wouldn't edit out!  I used Princess No. 4 from The Greeting Farm and water colored her with Distress Inks on 140 lb water color paper.  The sentiment stamp is from Papertrey Ink.  The glossy chipboard hearts have been in my stash for probably 10 years... I can't remember who makes them!  :)

I used some of my favorite new paper from My Mind's Eye - Indie Chic.  I bought this paper pack just for this blue and yellow flower pattern.  It's just gorgeous!

Isn't this sketch great?  It's a great way to emphasize the main image and still have cute stuff all around.  You should try it, even if you don't want to join in on the TGF fun!

I'm also entering this card into the current challenge over at {SIMON SAYS STAMP AND SHOW} -- the challenge is to use your favorite technique.  It think it goes without saying that my favorite new technique is Distress Ink water coloring.  Tee hee!  :)
