Today I'm sharing a card I created for Freshly Made Sketches 281. I always love playing along with their challenges! So inspiring! Here's the sketch:

And here's what I came up with:

...a super CAS thank you card featuring Concord & 9th's Kindhearted Stamp Set.

I drew some light pencil lines to help guide my stamping of the hearts. I added the black outline to several of the hearts to tie everything together and add some interest. After placing the vellum sentiment flag I realized it need a little something more, so I die-cut some small hearts from Lawn Fawn and glued them on top of the vellum. This also gave me a few places where I could hide some adhesive to keep the flag from flapping around (it's folded over the stamped panel and adhered to the back of the panel----sandwiched between the panel and the card base, but I liked the idea of just a tiny bit of adhesive on the front side as well).

I hope you like my card for today.

Thanks for stopping by!

LOVE the fun way you've done all of the hearts! Love that some have the outline. Love the way some are on top of the vellum. It's a great card! Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
