A NEW Sketchy Cardspiration #5 - My Heart Smiles Just Thinking of You

Happy 2019 crafty friends!

I know we're already a week into the new year, but I've been spending the last week with my boys. They're going back to school today after a VERY long holiday break! LOL

I have a new card and a NEW sketch to share today!

I think I had Valentine's Day on the mind when I created this one or I just love hearts!

I love when the design paper just works so well together. One of the frustrating parts with layered cards is finding match DP!

For my card, I used an ADORABLE Magnolia stamp that I just LOVE so much that I've used it several times! LOL. It's called "Tilda with Heart Balloons".

The sentiment is one of my sets added to the shop last year and can be found HERE!

I actually colored up this stamp last year when I got back into card making and only now created a card with it. haha... I was still refreshing my Copic skills at the time...I can definitely tell how much my skin coloring has improved over the year, especially with Alyce Keegan's help! I've been taking her coloring classes over at Kit and Clowder.

Some more up close pics...

And now, here's my card sketch I designed to create my card today! 
Sketchy Cardspiration #05!

I want to try to post a new sketch every month and they will be here for whenever you need a little inspiration! I hope you all enjoy them and find them useful!

I would LOVE to see any cards you make inspired by my Sketches!
You can share with me on Pinterest or on my Facebook Page in the coordinating albums created.
