The Challenge 59-With Love

*** Scroll down to the post below or click HERE to see my card for this week's Mojo Monday sketch! *** 

The Challenge is back with a new challenge!   Since it's the first week of the month, this week we've got a sketch for you to play with. I kept things clean and simple--and stampy--for my take on the sketch.

With Love card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps from The Cat's Pajamas
I used the new Conversation Hearts stamp set from The Cat's Pajamas and a trio of pigment inks--pale pink, dark pink, and red-- to stamp several of the set's heart images along the left side of a white cardstock panel.  I admit that I did a few trial runs of this before settling on an arrangement that I liked! 

After stamping the hearts, I added the "with love" sentiment from the Words of Love set to the right of the hearts in dark pink ink.  The design looked a bit flat to me, so I added a trio of pale pink enamel dots interspersed around the hearts. The finished panel was adhered to a coordinating pink card base.

Check out what the rest of the talented team at The Challenge has created based on this week's sketch.  Here's where to find them:
