Paper Smooches SPARKS-You Fog My Spectacles

*** Scroll down to the post below or click HERE to see my card for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! *** 

This week's Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge theme is anything goes.  I used the Incognito set and coordinating Glasses dies released last month for my love themed card.

You Fog My Spectacles card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Paper Smooches
I used the glasses as my focal image, die cutting them from red cardstock, then again from shiny silver paper.  I pieced together the glasses, using the lens pieces from the silver glasses to fill in the red die cut frames.  The glasses were attached to a pale pink patterned paper panel using foam tape.  I die cut a bunch of hearts from red cardstock using the Tiny Hearts die and arranged them above the glasses on the patterned paper panel.  I think this heart die is going to get a lot of use!  The hearts are a perfect size for so many things.

I adhered the patterned paper panel to a pink card base.  For some contrast between the patterned panel and the card base, I tucked a narrow strip of silver paper underneath the panel's left edge.  I stamped the "you fog my spectacles" sentiment in pale pink pigment ink on a white panel, then added that to the card.
