Retro Sketches Challenge 47

Hi there! Playing along in the most recent Retro Sketches Challenge!

Here's the sketch:

And here's my creation:

When I was at Archivers on Tuesday getting inky with my girls, Lee and Michele, I bought an ADORABLE sheet of 12x12 patterned paper from Crate Paper's Fourteen Collection. The sheet itself is called "Be Mine," and it's so stinkin' cute!!! The sweet little patterned hearts I used on the above card were cut from one side, and the green journal strip is from the reverse side.

The sentiment is one of my absolute FAVES from DeNami Design, and I think it coordinates perfectly with the other elements in the layout! What do you think???

Thanks for stopping by today!

Stamps: Empty Envelope (Northwoods), F171 Sending You Love (DeNami Design), A94 Mini Heart (DeNami Design)
Ink: Onyx Black and Satin Red Versafine (DeNami Design)
Cardstock: Brown Kraft (DeNami Design), Vintage Cream (Papertrey Ink)
Patterned Paper: Fourteen-Be Mine (Crate Paper)

I have to say when I see Michele's FB posts saying she's going to Archiver's, I just think "JEALOUS GIRL HERE!" Love your card...I can see why you bought that paper!

Lisa, this card is absolutely fabulous! Your cluster of three hearts is perfectly arranged. And I love the red heart peeking out of that adorable envelope :-). That IS a fabulous sentiment, of course!!!
