Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 271-I've Got a Spot in My Heart for You

It's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.  I recently added the adorable Playful Pups set from Mama Elephant to my stash (I tried, but I couldn't resist those sweet doggies) and I inked up my new set for my simple take on the sketch.

I've Got a Spot in my Heart for You card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from Mama Elephant
I used the dog in the play bow stance for my focal image.  This is a favorite position of my Chloe the cutie puppy.  She's always up for playtime!  I colored the image with Copic markers, then cut it out with the matching die.  It was adhered to a round panel using foam tape for dimension.  I cut a pink heart using one of the Honey Bunny dies and added that to the panel, too.

I matted a strip of pink chevron paper with a piece of rose cardstock, then adhered it to a pink card base.  For contrast, I die cut a fishtail flag strip from navy cardstock and layered that over the chevron panel, then added the image panel on top.  The sentiment was stamped near the bottom of the cardfront in navy pigment ink.

To play along, just create a card based on the sketch and link it up on the SSSC blog.  Be sure to stop by the blog to check out what the SSSC team has created using the sketch.  And, don't forget to check in on Wednesday to see one of our favorite cards made with the sketch.
