Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 175-We've Got Great Chemistry

It’s time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  I used this week's sketch to create a fun Valentine's Day card.

 I used the new Love Potion stamp set and coordinating dies from Papertrey Ink for my card.  I die cut two of the set's beaker (I think that's what these are called . . .) images from white cardstock and stamped the matching images on the die cut pieces, using red ink for the liquids inside.  They're adhered to a kraft panel with foam tape.  I arranged them so I'd have enough room to stamp the "we've got great chemistry" sentiment at the top of the panel.

The panel is set on a piece of grid patterned paper with a red dot embossed strip across the middle.  The embossed strip is layered on a kraft panel.  A little silver strip adds some sparkle to the design.  After setting the image panel in place, I added a red felt heart with a twine tied button as an accent.

To play along, just create a card based on the sketch and link it up on Karen’s blog. For lots of inspiration be sure to check out what the other Sweet Sunday Sketch stampers and our special guest stamper, Shannon White, have created for you this week. Here’s where to find them:
