Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge 230-Love Struck

It’s time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge!  I used the sketch to make a love themed design with stamps and dies from Paper Smooches.

I used the cute cupid image from the Love Struck set to represent the sketch's star shaped element.  The image was stamped on white cardstock and colored with Copic markers, then die cut using the matching Love Struck Icon dies.  At the last minute I decided to paper piece the little cutie's bottoms with the same dotted paper I used for one of the panels on the cardfront.  It really helped to tie all of the elements together!

I covered a pale gray card base with a panel of gray patterned paper, then added the pink dotted panel along the left side of the card.  The "love struck" sentiment was stamped in black ink on a pale gray panel and added to the cardfront, overlapping the pink dotted panel.  I used dimensional dots to add the colored Cupid image on top.  A trio of white enamel dots completed the design.
