Chickaniddy Crafts March Card Sketch

Today, I have a card to share that I made for the fabulous sketch 

Now, I decided to tweak the sketch to make my card after falling in love with one
of the patterned papers in the Chickaniddy Crafts Date Night Collection Pad
-- the one with the sweet row of houses along the bottom of it!

I let the houses stand in for the horizontal borders & hearts along the bottom of the sketch.

Here's my card:

Supplies: Paper (DN140S09; DN140S05): 6x6 Collection Pad (DN14PD01); 
Clear Stamps (DN14ST01), Enamel Hearts (DN14EB07)

I trimmed the house paper to 4x5.25".
Using Hello sentiment from the Date Night stamp set, I stamped on the patterned paper in Versamark and heat embossed it with some light yellow embossing powder.
Then, I inked up the sentiment again in Versamark, but this time, I inked it up in some melon berry ink before stamping it. Then, I heat embossed it with clear embossing powder.
I die cut two strips of patterned paper with some banner dies and adhered them to my card.
Three sweet enamel hearts & some stitching along the top finishes it off.

Tip: if you don't have coloured embossing powders, stamp in versa mark first,
then in the ink and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.

Be sure to stop by the Chickaniddy Crafts blog to see 
Meredith's & Kathy's takes on the sketch.

Thanks for looking!
